Movie Screening: Atlantis (Атлантида)
February 22, 2022 at 7:00 pm
Few countries have been shaped by war as much as Russia. War, in many ways, is the burden of Russian history. Not surprisingly, Russian cinema (Soviet and post-Soviet) offers some of the most profound representations of war in the history of film. At the same time, filmmakers around the world have engaged with the Soviet Union and Russia as a threat or an invading force in places like Ukraine, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. Join the Russian Flagship Program on February 22 at the Varsity Theater for the first film in this semester’s series dedicated to the depictions of war in Russian cinema and of Russia at war.
