The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies and the Center for European Studies present: 

Spring film series: An Eclectic Tour

Русский ковчег/Russian Ark

April 18, 2012 at 7:00 PM

 BUR 136 Burdine Hall
(note new location, different from last semester)

Русский ковчег/Russian Ark- (dir. Alexander Sokurov, 2002).  Join our unnamed guide and narrator on a sweeping tour through three hundred years of Russian history.  Sokurov's remarkable film was shot in the glorious Hermitage Museum, in a single take with a cast of thousands.  More of a prose-poem than a narrative story, this incredibly beautiful film will be all the more stunning on the big screen.  Not to be missed!

  All movies are free and have English subtitles
