"We met with Victor in 1987, when I was shooting the documentary "Rock." Heroes I had five: Boris Grebenshchikov (leader of group "Aquarium" - ed.), Yuri Shevchuk (leader of group "DDT" - ed.), Oleg Garkusha (the leader of the group "Auktyon" - ed.), Timur Novikov (painter - ed.) and Viktor Tsoi. I chose the most silent of them – Victor and offered to come to him in the boiler room with a camera and asking questions, to shoot it there. He worked the entire shift. We spoke with him, I took his speech, was friends with his wife Mariana, later also filmed his son Sasha for the film "Last hero". Victor was a person, quite introverted, but at concerts he was transformed and had a mystical impact on the viewers. It was already clear that this extraordinary personality, but to imagine that 30 years after his death he will remain a cult figure, I could not. This is its uniqueness, its phenomenon," - said the Teacher.
