The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies is hosting a screening of "Mothers," and a Q&A with the director Milcho Manchevski.
About the film: Two nine-year-old girls report a flasher to the police even though they never saw him. Three filmmakers meet the only residents of a deserted village - an elderly brother and sister who have not spoken to each other in 16 years. Retired cleaning women are found raped and strangled in a small town. The fiction slowly turns into a documentary.
About the director: Manchevski wrote and directed the feature films "Before the Rain" (1994), "Dust" (2001), "Shadows" (2007) and "Mothers" (2011), over 50 short forms, including “Tennesse” for Arrested Development (1991). He has also been a director on HBO’s “The Wire.” He has authored two exhibitions of photographs, works of fiction and performance art.
