The claim by Chris Schmidt that proceeds from the showings of his film Puppeteer will be going to Igor Fokin's family is false. Chris has exploited the grief of Igor's Family to advance his own career and make a profit. He has severed all communication with the family. He even did not return certain priceless item - the original tape with music from Igor's show.
In 1996 those who knew and loved Igor offered enormous support. Yelena Demikovsky is helping the family through sales of her film The Story of Fenist.

Widow of Igor Fokin
