“She was doing her lone thing…”

Режиссер Елена Погребижская о фильме «Доктор Лиза»

“It was important for me to understand that somewhere it is, in Novokuznetsk, and I can at any time to handle it. The man was not that stupid domestics busy to make money… These issues were resolved themselves while she was engaged to others – helping people,” says Elena Pogrebizhskaya.

the In the club Tower on March 1, showed and discussed the film “Dr. Lisa” directed by Elena Pogrebizhskaya. Discussion “burned”, and Pogrebizhskaya, refining and fending off, shifting from foot to foot and shivering corners of his lips, discussed with students the personality of Dr. Lisa and her business, which changed not one human life.

“Dr. Lisa”: how came the idea to make a movie

“It was terribly interesting LJ (LiveJournal – blog platform for blogging). She described the history of their patients,” recalls the Director.

Snimok-ekrana-2017-01-05-v-1.40.01-kopiya“Dr. Lisa” is a film-the answer to the question, why would a man be treated dirty homeless person, to go to the sick at the station, inspire hope lying in a hospice or hold together with a deaf and blind girl six hours while it will not take you to the hospital. This man is a doctor, a specialist in palliative medicine. The person who needs to be there when hurt and scared. Elena Pogrebizhskaya sure that such a person was Elizaveta Glinka, known as Dr. Lisa.

About Dr. Lisa

Elizaveta Glinka – a human rights activist and public figure, the doctor-resuscitator, Executive Director of the of the Fund “Fair use”, member of the presidential Council for human rights and civil society. But before the filming of “Dr. Lisa” (which is 2009) Elizaveta Glinka, mainly engaged in the field of hospice service: visited the sick, distributed the new, supported, every Wednesday toured the stations. “It’s heartbreaking. There was a certain man, a doctor who worked on this and can say, completed for government work constantly,” said Elena Pogrebizhskaya during the discussion of the film.

Elizaveta Glinka died 25 December 2016 – it was the TU-154 plane, which was heading to Syria and crashed during departure from Sochi. Dr. Lisa is survived by three sons. Hleb, husband of Lisa, an international lawyer, an American citizen who built the first Kiev hospice, which was led by Dr. Lisa. Their children she has two: Alyosha and Kostya, they were born in the United States. The third son of Elijah she adopted after the death of a cancer patient women in Saratov.

The film “Dr. Lisa” in 2009 received the award TEFI.

Elena Pogrebizhskaya:

“I’m honestly amazed at how watching a movie years later. It looks as if we are specifically they did something, giving something metaphorical sense. Chair with of the ship, talking to Lisa about his own death… I look and think, she says she doesn’t know, and I know…”

“be Surprised that can even fly and bullets don’t have”


to speak ill of such people, conscience does not allow, though… a controversial figure. She went to Syria to help with medicines, can, helped soldiers. But maybe she wouldn’t have to do this if it has not begun. I’m not talking about her medical practice, rather about the political: its cooperation with various parties ….


And this, of course, negatively characterizes a person, right? For me it was a revelation when I posted your film after the death of Lisa, get under him immediately one hundred reviews of the infernal mud. I like a man who had gone away from the last events in the life of Lisa (after filming and several charity concerts 5 years), might have missed some moments. But it turned out that it is impossible to smoothly address the issues of the military. Because of us not being bombed, we have no specific enemy. And the one who is friends with this enemy, the enemy is sure. Once dealt with this subject somewhere from Moscow, from afar, to wonder what the answer could go even bullets, is not necessary, although strange at first. I brought down the site twice suddenly. I certainly do not fight with anyone. But you cannot touch with impunity. People have hurts. People want revenge for their pain. Anyone, even dogs, who or what is really not to blame. What’s the difference – who else is going?

“Charisma does not replace”


what do you think, will the Fund “Fair use” to exist without Elizabeth’s?


Know that some volunteers want to continue. But… I’m not interested. I am attracted to charisma. All, it is not. Petrovich, doctor who was always gone because he used to work with Lisa and no Lisa he didn’t need it. He is an oncologist and maybe an oncologist in any other place. Charisma is not replaced. The Germans were killed and no more second Nemtsov, for example.

“This is different from 99.99 percent of humanity”


<>we have established the image of such prosvetova person. But it was not revealed the true reasons why she so calmly bandaged the homeless, couldn’t she…?


So she’s a doctor! This is a normal desire for doctor: thermometers to put, pills to give – it’s their job, it is normal and natural. Pasha, which you have seen, produces such a false impression “simpleton”, although, in fact, very intelligent, successful businessman who has long sought chervotkina, but not found. Believe me, there are people not like you: solid and living by other values. Of course, no Holy it was. Its difference from other people was that its task is above life. She was motivated to help people, she was constantly engaged, no matter what danger regardless of public opinion, despite the suspicion on a bunch of crap, negative comments, and just doing that it was important to help people. This is different from 99.99 percent of humanity.

“My goal was to show that this movement against the wind”


Managed to find the right Lisa?


And I don’t know. I don’t even know myself, and certainly not a hero. That is, if we knew people, people would not be divorced, right? If people knew the people, the beautiful people in ten years would not become a monster, right? My task was to show what was important at the time: the core of this process, strange help people that is not paid for, which nobody organized this whole movement against strong winds. Since Lisa is a very important figure in Russian history and now I wish it was some Russian Mother Teresa. But I don’t know Lisa. The Director can’t be friends with the characters. This violates the ethics of the profession.

“She was Smoking, you know, lonely.”


And the tears you saw her?


No tears no. But she was so Smoking, you know, lonely… In the movie there is a moment where she’s sitting on the steps in the basement and smokes alone in a robe, a special form, in which they treat the homeless. Such a lonely view. Lone-lone. And since Kirill is a fine operator, he is immediately removed. For me this is a very accurate metaphor. It is such, such and remained. She made my lonely business and how people would want to join it, something interfered with them.

We are living in Russia, people are so arranged that believe how someone motivated by something just good, it is very difficult. Certainly you need to spend time to find where the second bottom. That’s why you can’t believe? There is an example from the book where it is written: this people was so high. Read and believe. And if he live around the corner, I believe it is simply impossible. Need to find that there’s wrong with him.

“I Have a feeling”


And you believed?


Yes. I have flair. This is my main talent. I think the reptilian brain (laughs). True, true. My main brain is working so-so. Reptilian and works great. Instinct leads me to choose heroes. So, in fact, choosing a non-obvious theme for movies, I almost always gets to the point. And the result is a resonant movie. It’s not because I want to brag about. It’s true.

“It was a personal grief”


How do you handle the news of her death?


When Lisa died, for me it was a personal grief. Fortunately, it has now become weaker. But I can say that my father’s death has made me a less impression than the death of Lisa, because my father had no relations, and with Lisa was. It was important for me to understand that somewhere it is, in Novokuznetsk, and I can at any time to handle it. And for me, it has always been and remains a moral reference point. The man was not that stupid domestics busy to make money… These questions were solved by themselves, while she did something else – helping people. For me it is a serious landmark. I also want to take an example, how to live ideas. A little bit visionary, but it’s good.

What happened?
Vladimir Aristarkhov
Vladimir Aristarkhov

The first Deputy of the Ministry of culture of the Russian Federation Vladimir Aristarkhov announced that the Agency has considered the initiative to establish in Russia a Day of patriotism “worthy of attention”. This is stated in the letter addressed to the Chairman of the Duma Committee on defense Vladimir Shamanov. Aristarkhov also drew attention to possible financial constraints on the part of the budget of the country and indicated the need for further discussion of the initiative:

“The mentioned issue shall be considered as a subject to wide public comment and conduct a historical and chronological assessment of the Russian Academy of Sciences”

What’s the idea of a holiday?

The proposal to declare August, 6th as a Day of patriotism was sent in the state Duma on 14 November 2016. The author – Rahman Anshukov, President of the Association of entrepreneurs for the development of the business patriotism, “Avanti” – not only prepared the draft of the law, but also amounted to an explanatory note to justify the need for the establishment of the feast.

It states that the introduction of anti-russian sanctions, the purpose of which was the violation of the economic stability of the country, has had the opposite effect. The policy of import substitution was very effective countermeasure, to unite the citizens of Russia in the struggle for economic independence, “which was a real expression of patriotism in difficult conditions of constant political and economic pressure”.

The main role in the fight against sanctions, according to Anshukov, was played by the RF presidential decree dated 6 August 2014 “On application of certain special economic measures to ensure security of the Russian Federation”. Thanks to him, “business patriots” found the strength to move forward and to resist anti-russian policy of the West:

“The Establishment of a new memorable date August 6, the anniversary of the adoption of the decree of the President of Russia, will perpetuate the manifestation of unity within the country, which helped to meet the internal growth external pressure”


Even at the time of making proposal to establish a Day of patriotism this holiday has undergone massive criticism. Internet users have used all your sense of humor in order to beat as the title of the new “Victory day” and the purpose of its introduction:

This victory day smells like palm oil (re-write of russian song, can’t be translated)
Patriotic Day is too much though. But we can call it whether Galore Day or Healthy food Day (cabbage, turnip, whatever else is russian)
Vitaly Milonov

In the state Duma, however, the initiative met no resistance. Deputy Vitaly Milonov has fully supported the idea of establishing a day of patriotism, noticing that mark it is possible and without the usual foreign products:

“It used to be Australian, new Zealand, Argentinian meat, but not now. Only Voronezh, Bryansk only. Indeed, the quality is very decent”

“Patriotism Day” in other countries

The only country in which there is a public holiday with the word “patriotism” in the name, is United States. One of his first decrees Donald Trump announced the day of his inauguration – January 20 – as National day of patriotism. Special piquancy of the situation makes that in the USA even before Trump, there were two public holiday with a similar name: Patriot’s Day is celebrated on 11th November across the country in memory of the victims of the terrorist attack of 2001 and Patriot Day – April 19 in the States of Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Maine commemorating the first battles of the war of independence.

expert Opinion for the HIT-Media
Vasily Abashkin
Vasily Abashkin, senior expert, candidate of economic Sciences, HSE

“I think, to maintain national unity just one occasion. August 6, in my opinion, the date is artificial, opportunistic and politicized that nothing, no one, apart from some individuals, not associated.

Besides, if it be considered as a geopolitical response to Trump, as a flawed attempt. No value added, that is good, I do not see this”
