The Museum of the World Ocean presents CinemaOcean exhibition project!

The sea and cinema are boundless! They are of many faces, unpredictable and amazingly beautiful. The sea inspires cinema. It can be a background or even the main character but in both cases the sea reveals real human face.

The Museum of the World Ocean and the leading Russia’s film studios Mosfilm and Lenfilm supported by Zapad-Film have prepared an exhibition project. It is devoted to legendary films where the sea topic is in the foreground and helped film directors in creating impressive works.

Over 100 photographs, cinema props and artifacts from museum depository are going to move guests to shooting areas of Admiral Ushakov, Crimson Sails, How Czar Peter the Great Married Off His Moor, Amphibian Man, Striped Trip, etc.

Visitors will see how cinema industry changed over time, learn which actress could have played Assol, who could have been Gray and who played the Swan Princess and who had almost stolen Petrenko’s role of Peter I.

However, not only old films are going to reveal their secrets. Kaliningrad Oblast has recently got quite popular among national filmmakers who have not ignored the legendary Vityaz, the submarine B-413, the R/V Kosmonavt Viktor Patsayev and Depth exposition they used as a shooting area. There will be a separate exposition devoted to the films produced at these locations.

Moreover, guests can pretend a film editor, a voice actor or try to play a role.

The exhibition is a sort of a path along cinema. It will start in the saloon on board the R/V Vityaz, go via the Maritime Hall and finish in a movie cabin where Raid, a Russian crime drama television series, was filmed.
