The "Mongol Kino" Enterprise and the Russian "MosFilm" Corporation are jointly producing a two-part full size feature film based upon the famous "Red Shots' Ladies" composition by the State Awarded Author B.Dogmid, who received much critique from the Central Committee of Writers at that time.
The story will revolve around a 500 thousand populated Mongolia
about five decades ago on the way of the medical treatment with “red injections” and the first ever railroad establishment in Mongolia. The Director for the “Mongol Kino” Enterprise Mr. J.Solongo is working as the general producer for the “Red Shots’ Ladies of the 505”.
This film-making is a very large scale of Mongolia-Russian joint production, as the two countries have not collaborated on any production for the past 20 years. A team of 80 people are working from the Mongolian side, including the People’s Artists of Mongolia P.Tserendagva, D.Mendbayar and A.Ochirbat. Also a large team, including Russian merit artists as well as two studios of ”MosFilm” Corporation, will be collaborating from the Russian side. As this is a historical story, it will be built upon the hard work of Mongolians and Russians together.
The cinematography works are currently at 40%. The 1940-1960s great up building process of Mongolia and the historical occurrences after WWII will be reflected in the movie.
Mongolia reached a new level of the development, as a railroad was set from north to south, where it alone occupied 90% of the Mongolian freight turnover connecting domestic and foreign traffic until 2000. As history implies, with the ratification of the 505th decree by the Government of the USSR (today the Russian Federation) after the WWII, thousands of soldiers were confined into political captives, and mobilized into construction works such as railroad setting works. For a duration of 7 years, about 80-100 thousand captives, along with railroad workers, set a 1,200km long railroad stretching from the northern to the southern border of Mongolia. The railroad works, which started in 1946, reached Ulaanbaatar in 1949. However Mao Ze Dong (the 1st Chairman of the Communist Party of China) did not permit for the railroads to reach the Chinese border, as permitting the railroad tracks would eventually lead up to the recognizing of Mongolian Independence. Nevertheless, the permit was granted after a year long wait, finishing the railroad settings down to the Chinese border in 1953. In fact, Mongolian man-power did not take part in this whole building process.
With the census of 1946, Mongolian population
was at 630 thousand, with over 70 thousand Chinese citizens, 30-40 thousand Tibet citizens and only a little over 500 thousand Mongolians. And in between the half a million Mongolians, the majority suffered from various contagious diseases, especially where sexually transmitted diseases reached the levels of epidemics in between the people of reproductive age. At the time, 5,000 births were recorded against 13,000 deaths per year, making the death rates to be twice the size of birth rates, thus endangering the existence of the whole nation, not to talk about the independence of the country. Large Russian scientists are known to have determined the Mongolian nation to be on its way to extinction. Hence, 2,000 doctors came from the USSR organizing 35 campaigns in all sums and aimags of Mongolia, giving shots to every Mongolian.
The biggest investment by the Government of Mongolia in 1930-1950 was invigorating its nation and people. The state leaders and administrations of the time exhausted its last supply and possibilities to invigorate its people.
