Sokurov told about the course in the Caucasus, where he had 12 disciples, and admitted to study in his workshop, it was difficult – he always demanded from the students of the discipline.

«There was discipline like in military school, and it applies to guys and girls. It was the guys from the Caucasus, there is a different culture, a different life, but they still have some features of Caucasian mentality: it is a special relationship to the master, in General, respect to the elder. In the Russian tradition it is not. But to learn is always coercion», — said the Director.

However, he notes that he does not know how will the fate of his students in the film. «To help them especially, no one will, unless they will buy. To buy some can — for the talent, ability, education. But to help them find the money for the movie it’s hard for me,» said Sokurov.

Today the Director is not sure whether he will gain a new course. According to him, now the question about the possibility of creating a Nordic-Baltic school, which could be organized in Tallinn. «Now there are discussions about the program, since my suggestions don’t fit in with the EU program for education, my proposals was difficult,» said Sokurov.
