New drama of Paul chuhraja “Cool tango” became the closing film
3rd Moscow Jewish film festival. Together with the crew picture
presented actress Julia Peresild. She told me how
hard claimed in the film because the Director needed an actress,
talking with a Baltic accent. But Peresild was able to convince a master that she will be able
to realize his plans. “Cool tango” is not accidentally revealed to MJFF, as in the picture
there is a story about the great Patriotic war and the Holocaust in Lithuania, and in the center
events — the story of love and hate of Jews and Lithuanians, passed through the years.

“No
any case impossible to regard this festival as ethnic — says
Julia Aug. Is a large arts festival, a celebration that marked
the national idea. I checked in the jury and for me every time this is very
responsible task. One thing sympathy, and quite another —
professional approach, which largely prevents to watch a movie in the adopted,
the popular sense. As for feature films, for me personally
there was no doubt, but relatively short, I was really torn:
the choice was difficult.”
