“Every year, forest fires cause enormous damage to nature and entail human casualties. This applies to everyone, regardless of country. The heroes of the film will be recognizable in every corner of the world, because such guys are everywhere. Not invented Marvel superheroes, but those who live on the next street, whom you can meet on the way to work, who are ready to go to fight the terrible elements every day. In the United States, the problem of forest fires is no less acute, and we are glad that buyers became interested in the painting, believing in its potential and appreciating its scale and quality. For us, as a distributor, now, during a pandemic and crisis in the cinema business, this is especially important. We continue to work actively towards strengthening the positions of Russian cinema in the international arena, “- said Vadim Vereshchagin, General Director of Central Partnership.
Konstantin Khabensky in the film “Fire”
Recall that the shooting of the project of the studio “TRITE” by Nikita Mikhalkov, the TV channel “Russia 1” and the film company “Central Partnership” took place in 2019. In particular, the film team worked in the Krasnoyarsk Territory during real forest fires. At the same time, when creating the fire element, the film crew did not destroy a single plant: they bought already sawn trees, from which large-scale forest scenery was built.
The actors of the picture tried to perform dangerous stunts on their own and worked in the environment of a real fire. The project team was consulted by specialists from the Ministry of Emergencies and Avialesoohrana. In addition, these services provided unique air transport for filming – MI-8 helicopters, IL-62, An-26 aircraft and multipurpose BE-200. And the scene of extinguishing a forest fire, in which a seaplane was involved, was filmed simultaneously with six cameras. It is worth noting that Alexey Nuzhny got the idea to create such a film after talking with his friend Igor Osipov – he worked as a paratrooper-firefighter. A friend of the scriptwriter and director of the film died on the last day of filming “Fire” in the line of duty.
