Yakut movie “Candidate” was refused distribution because of the wig-wearing hero 13:17

The movie “Candidate”, directed by Dmitry Shadrin, could not receive a distribution certificate from the Russian Ministry of Culture. In this respect reports SakhaDay.

According to an informed source, the Ministry of Culture rejected the film’s distribution certificate due to the film’s alleged LGBT propaganda.

The source explained that representatives of the supervisory authority did not like the character of Zina, a disguised man in a wig and dress performed by Innokenty Orestov.

It is known that Zina migrated from the “Lekha and Zina” film universe to “Aday”. The main character of this movie dresses up as a comatose woman named Zina in order to embezzle her millions.

The other day director and screenwriter Alexander Sokurov named Roskomnadzor’s ban on the screening of the Yakut film “Aita” in Russia was a strange political act and a big mistake. He explained that cinema cannot pit different people against each other and cannot be banned.

Previously recognized“Cheburashka-2” was put into production.
