The cinema house will give a run of the exhibition “Sholokhov’s Personages in Cinema” dedicated to the Year of Russian Cinema.

There are 19 screen versions made on the works of M.A.Sholokhov. Each of them has made its mark in the history of cinema and in the hearts of the viewers; many of the films entered into “the golden fund” of Russian cinema, they are known, seen and loved.

The exhibition will tell about filming the novels “The Quiet Don”, “Virgin Soil Upturned” by M.A.Sholokhov and about the films based on the writer’s early works. Besides, the visitors will learn about the history of the films after Sholokhov’s books devoted to the Great Patriotic War.
