Tallinn Black Nights awarded Andrei Konchalovsky with the Lifetime Achievement Award



Russian film director Andrei Konchalovsky was awarded the festival's Lifetime Achievement Award last night at the screening of his latest film Sin (Il Peccato).

This is the second time after Andrei Konchalovsky visits Tallinn Black Nights, the first time being in 2002 when he attended the screening of House of Fools, which was also screened at the festival yesterday, with him and his wife, the film's star Julia Vysotskaya in attendance.

His latest film Sin, was shot fully in Italy with the dialogue in Italian, is a portrait of the Renaissance artist Michelangelo, which follows him through the agonies and ecstasy of his own creative genius as two rival noble factions compete for his loyalty. The film was entirely shot in Italy over the course of fourteen weeks. The film is produced by Andrei Konchalovsky Studios and Jean Vigo Italia with Rai Cinema. The Renaissance maestro is played by Alberto Testone (Pasolini: The Hidden Truth; Suburra).



At the press conference, Andrei Konchalovsky expressed his opinion that in a sense we still live in the same conditions as Michelangelo: "We still live in the same world that is moved by the fear death, war, humiliation, starvation."

When asked about whether political repression should be considered as the biggest danger for art, the director replied that all the greatest works have been created in some kind of repressive context - be the source either the church or the state - mentioning the examples of Chekhov, Michelangelo and Cervantes "I don't think that limiting rights has managed to limit the genius," he stated.

When asked what he considers to be the deed of his life, Konchalovsky replied: "My children!"

At the Q&A session after the screening he referred to the quote by the Dalai lama - "People are made to be loved, things are made to be used" - saying the this seems to have been turned upside by people as material objects are obsessed over and people are exploited all over the world.

About Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival



Started in 1997, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe and busiest regional industry platforms, hosting more than 1000 guests and industry delegates and over 160 journalists. The festival screens around 250 features and more than 300 shorts and animations and sees an attendance of 80 000 people annually. In 2017 the festival was covered in 71 languages with a potential global media audience of over 1.1 billion people.

As of 2014 the festival holds the FIAPF accreditation for holding an international competition programme which puts the festival into the so- called A-category of film festivals, alongside other 14 festivals in the world (including Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, San Sebastian, Shanghai, Tokyo etc).  

Black Nights has an umbrella structure with two sub-festivals PÖFF Shorts and youth and children's film festival Just Film taking place concurrently with the main festival,
two off-season festivals - Haapsalu Horror and Fantasy Film Festival and Tartu Love Film Festival - and a fully-fledged film industry platform Industry@Tallinn, organised jointly with the Baltic Event Co-production market.
