Finn recalled that at the Fifth Congress in the Kremlin raised the mandates even the students of VGIK. "And there's Our?" he said."This is not a personal conflict, not confrontation "charismatic personality" the envious and losers, not the split between representatives of different positions, this is a deep systemic crisis, says Finn. - There is a real danger of turning our film in a kind of oligarchic Empire with his fiscal system"."This Congress will transform the public life of our community in the desert and will confirm the split.
