The list of films also includes Belarusian drama film "Crystal Swan" directed by Darya Zhuk, Ukrainian drama film "Donbass" directed by Sergei Loznitsa, Polish drama "Cold War" by Pawel Pawlikowski and Mexico's drama "Roma" by Alfonso Cuaron.
Khabensky's film is based on the history of the only successful revolt at a Nazi death camp during the Second World War. The uprising was led by Soviet officer Aleksander Pechersky. Some 300 prisoners managed to escape the camp, while only around 50 of them survived the war.
The Sobibor Nazi death camp operated from May 1942 until October 1943. According to the latest data collected by historians, Nazis killed about 250,000 Jews from Poland and other European countries at this camp.
"We are very happy that this has happened, and especially glad that it has happened now. Starting from tomorrow, ceremonial and mourning events will be held around the world to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the uprising. Some of these events will be held with our active participation in Moscow, Bratislava, Jerusalem and other cities. It is good that this news has come at this very moment. This allows to draw attention of the public, those who have not yet learned that such an important event happened 75 years ago," Vasiliev said.
