Despite the fact that I have seen many documentaries on African themes, Yastrzhembskiy’s documentary surprise me greatly. The ability to shoot small peoples’ life and a deep understanding of their unique customs. The film will find its audience, as it provides an opportunity to look at the disappearing cultures.

Of course, for the shooting of films , experience is required. Even despite the fact that Sergey Vladimirovich has no such experience, it is excellent how he coped with his task, and he did a really interesting movie. It was wise of him to have paid more attention to the energy sides as the mystical life of the African tribes.

For me, Sergey is the only person who fully realized himself as a politician. He made all the heights to which you can only aspire and now I wish him the same luck in his new and creative activities.

The film "Children of Savannah " was very successful. I loved it. And the very idea, and how the documentary was filmed – just wonderful. I heard that Sergey with his crew lived in ordinary tents near the villages of African tribes during the filming process. Judging by how happily Sergey learns to find a common language with the wild in our standards people, alien civilizations, warming with them by the fire, eating their food, genuinely smiling little black children, I conclude that he loves his job.

Wonderful and interesting movie. Sergey continues a very good and unjustly forgotten tradition of documentary filming. He gives us the opportunity to see how it is there. In his film "A Stone Age Kalashnikov" I saw a lot of strange things that in the XXI century no longer exist. It's amazing .

Lots of blood. He surpassed Tarantino here. What I saw Sergey shot about Ethiopia is really, in my view , very interesting. This is very interesting, very informative. Most importantly, it is all done due to the author’s interest in it. He shoots his films with a big delight. Not for commercial interest, but for his inner interest.
