Nastya Ivleeva plans to continue her acting career after the scandal with the series “Monastery”

The series “Monastery” I didn’t have time to come out (only two episodes are available on Kinopoisk), because I was already making a lot of noise. No one forbade to look at it, it is in the public domain, but an application for a rental certificate for demonstration in cinemas has been received failed. ROC expertise, about which, among other things, the project was filmed, found that the image of the priests and in general of the work of the institute was noticeably distorted. That is why it is better not to show this in the cinema to the general public.

Why suddenly This has been decided by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation consult with the church? Firstly, because the series shows a complete “behind the scenes” view of this institution: everyday life, services, confession, communion, the sacrament of tonsure, and so on – an expert opinion on such a sensitive issue never hurts ( director Alexander Molochnikov, for example, does not consider himself a churchgoer, so he could easily make some fundamentally important mistakes). Secondly, because the creators of the series were allowed to work in the Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery – even the altar part – not only “out of old friendship”, but with the blessing of the leadership of the Russian Orthodox Church – this means that Kinopoisk had probably some agreements with the church about, say, the content of the recordings. And it is possible that these agreements have not been fully implemented (no one will ever tell honestly about this). Agreements can be written or oral, not recorded on paper. And understandable for both parties. An abstract example: in a mosque it would hardly have been possible to film such a candid project without revealing the idea.

However, these are all superfluous details, because no one forbids and cannot forbid watching The Monastery. Roskomnadzor clarified the obvious on the eve: rental certificates are issued by the Ministry of Culture, and Article 10.5 of the law “On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection” does not provide for a separate requirement for a rental certificate for a distributed audiovisual work. This is actually why the series is still available on Kinopoisk, but it is not shown in cinemas, as 98% of TV projects come out in Russia.

At the same time inspired by the resonance Nastya Ivlevawho played the main role of the escort Masha, who miraculously escaped in the monastery, strives for success in her acting career.

“Acting is a completely new brainchild for me,” the aspiring artist admitted. – And since I’m not playing myself, but a character, another person, I had to get used to it, find some tricks that would help me bring the idea to life. I will say this, I want and intend to further develop myself in this genre. What will be the roles and what it will look like – I don’t know. But I know exactly what I want to try.
