Names of Liberty: Victor Turov

It is no longer on the novel by Paul Nilin lyrically poetic tape "Through Cemetery" by UNESCO in 1994, included among the best 100 movies of the world. But for me, the tip of his creativity was the adaptation of Turow melezhavskih "People in the swamp." I watched it three times at intervals of one day. "Blame" were not only directorial skill, brilliant actors and literary composition base, and what movie heroes had read in Belarusian. All together it really made promises Cinématographe state.
The movie received the Municipal Prize of the USSR and several international film festivals awards. Continued — "Breath of Rain" — was, as so often happens, weaker, although someone else was considered to great success.
In 1989, I had the satisfaction to edit publishing "Fiction" produced by Nicholas Havstovicham first complete translation of "gentry logjam" Jana Barshchevsky. A year later, almost directly from the book, and was Turovsky "Gentleman" — unfortunately, already one of his last meaningful movies.
At first glance, it does not conflict with the authorities had the title of People’s Artist of the Byelorussian SSR and the USSR, was the first secretary of the Union of Cinematographers of the country, traveled the world. But Victor, who graduated from the All-Union Institute of Cinematography in 1960, and later in those days also engaged in the creative studio of Alexander Dovzhenko, forever remained "the Sixties" — the man who took a sip of freedom and breathed with her soul. This was evidenced by his long-standing friendship with Vladimir Vysotsky and Marina Vlady.
Its 60th anniversary, he noted at the Theatre actor, and later at the restaurant "October" under close supervision of doctors already hopelessly ill. Exactly a week later at the same venue funeral took place, in which eminent employee Ptashuk Misha, said that Desk — first in the Belarusian cinematography man who led the "people of the Marsh" on the world screen.
