They learnt about when and by whom Moscow was founded, how it has evolved and was surrounded by the lines of fortifications, how it was beautifully decorated by temples, chambers and palaces; how over the centuries not only the appearance of the city has changed, but also the life and lifestyle of Muscovites! Moscow buildings saved the memories of the great princes, Russian emperors and the Soviet leaders; how the most important events of Russian history were immortalized by the Muscovites in the streets and squares of the city.
Time went too quickly, but a magnificent view of the Moscow Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral and Lenin’s Mausoleum on the Red Square, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Alexander Gardens, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Bolshoi and Maly Theatres, the complex of buildings of the Presidential Administration in the Staraya Square, the parks along the embankments of the Moscow River, Seven Sisters, Victory Park on Poklonnaya Hill, the Moscow-City complex, greeted us.
I Film Festival "Docu-MENTAL"
In an era when human consciousness experiences aggressive influence of the rapidly changing environment, mental health appears to be one of the topics requiring urgent attention.
Why, wanting to offend a person, we call him or her "abnormal"? Why are we so sure that we know what being "normal" is? What is "norm" with regard to the psyche?
The Union for Mental Health presents the I Film Festival "Docu-MENTAL" that is aimed to raise an awareness about people with mental disorders and to reduce stigma surrounding them. The Festival was a part of the official program of the Congress on Mental Health: Meeting the Needs of the XXI Century. The festival's program includes first showings and iconic films about people with special mental needs: Life, Animated, Gary Numan: Android in La La Land, Off the Rails, God Knows Where I Am, Don Juan, Why am I here?, If I only were, Rain Man, Forrest Gump.
After watching, the audience were invited to participate in an open discussion held by international experts in the field of mental health and popular film critics.
