Yesterday May 28th in the cinema 'Kyiv' named the owner of the special award of the 47th KIFF Molodist. The prize for contribution to the cinema world was awarded to the famous German actor Jurgen Prokhnov.

Unfortunately, Jurgen, who turned 76 this year, was unable to arrive personally - injured his back - so the program Molodist coordinator Bogdan Zhuk presented the 'Scythian deer' to the director, Nick Baker-Montesius, who came to Kyiv to present the tape 'The Last Trip Leander', the main role which Prokhnov performed in. Filming took place in the co-production of Germany and Ukraine, and the events of the film unfold on the background of revolutionary events in Kiev and the war in the east.
