Red Church: Promo video for Minsk's 950th anniversary

Alexander Yefremov: theater and film director, People's Artist of Belarus:
I remember coming to Minsk on an early train. I had a lot of time before the beginning of work day. I decided to take a walk in the city and passed by Independence Square, back then it was called Lenina Square. And I saw this Red Church. Its doors were also closed but nearby I saw a sign that read Dom Kino (Cinema House). I thought that was a sign that life gave me. Church and cinema next to each other. This has become the path of my life, which I've been going along for 40 years. I have been trying to preserve the sacredness of cinema and theater which I serve.
