Sergey Debizhev about making the film
In the modern world, visualization of ideas has become crucial. Celestial Tavrida is a large-scale narration of the history, culture, nature, and people of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. Globally, the project seeks to demonstrate the whole power, beauty and potential of the Republic of Crimea, as well as its natural and human energy that actually gives rise to the genius loci. The story is extremely spectacular, showing to best advantage all the richness, the significance and the prospects of the Crimea, as part of the Russian state, the most valuable and the most pure diamond in its crown.

The Crimean team
For me it is very important that we managed to find world-class cameramen in Crimea. They know the region perfectly, they love it, and understand all the finest details. Apart from just being professionals, they were really fascinated by the project. ‘It was the dream of all my life, I have always wanted to make such a film’, said Alexey Nemov, director of photography, when he heard that we would work together.
Hymn to the peninsula
This spectacular, lively, impressive film made at world-class level gives both Russian and international audiences an account of the unique nature of Crimea: its beauty, diversity of geographical landscapes, its history and multiculturalism. In 2020-2021, the film will be screened at both international and Russian film festivals, premieres will take place in Moscow, Crimea, and St. Petersburg. The film will also be shown on television, in cinemas, and online platforms.
Celestial Tavrida is bound to become the signature of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol both in Russia and abroad.
