Abstract

Analysis of Russian films in 1992-2017 on the school-university topis shows that: - the educational / educational process left in the past the Soviet framework of communist orientations and anti-religious orientation; - the number of entertaining interpretations has sharply increased; - the stories are not directly related to key international political events, although they are to some extent dependent on domestic political attitudes; - the main conflicts are built on the confrontation of extraordinary teachers and students with stagnation, bureaucracy, the grayness of the bosses / colleagues / team; very often the focus is on problem zones (crisis, disappointment and fatigue, professional "burnout" of teachers, bureaucracy, corruption, pragmatic cynicism of students, teenage cruelty, etc.); - Among the characters distinctly manifested materialistic differentiation; - the pupil characters are mainly divided into the following categories: optimistic and vital perspectives (often associated with material status and hedonism), or in a state of depression and hopelessness; - activity of students is more directed towards entertainment, sex and material gain; - the attitude of teachers and students has lost the barriers of subordination, largely because the prestige of the pedagogical profession in the eyes of students and the public continued to fall; - in the pedagogical collectives, the images of female teachers, often lonely and unsettled, still come to the fore; - the appearance of students and teachers has become even more "free", vividly denoting female sex appeal; - film stories about students, in contrast to a number of Soviet counterparts, are virtually devoid of intellectual disputes, but are densely immersed in the genre element of melodrama and / or comedy; and in general, the theme of love in the cinema on the school-university theme is for the most part given accented comedic and / or melodramatic.
