The film «The White Yagel» (White Reindeer Moss) was awarded with the Audience Favorite Prize on the 36th Moscow International Film Festival. The creators of the film received the award «The key to the hearts of viewers».
The film «The White Yagel» was made on the basis of the novels by the Nenets woman-writer Anna Nerkagi «Aniko of Nogo Family» and «The White Yagel (Reindeer Moss)». It tells about life of indigenous peoples of the North. Film was made last spring on the territory of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The main roles were played by professional actors from Yakutia. People of Yamal were busy in crowd scenes.
As we should note, Russian cinematography was not among favorites of the audience during the previous years. Earlier the Audience Favorite Prize went to the Netherlands, Italy, Serbia, Poland and Venezuela. The film «The White Yagel» broke this tendency. This year a film made in Russia won this prize for the first time during several latest years.
Exactly «The White Yagel» by the film director Vladimir Tumayev received high appraisal of the audience among 16 films of the contest program.
