Russian Movie Series: Prisoner of the Mountains
March 1 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 Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies on March 1 in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium for the second film in this semester’s series dedicated to the depictions of war in Russian cinema and of Russia at war.
