My Perestroika

Sponsored by Department of Russian

Monday, March 19, 2012
7:30 p.m.

Director Robin Hessman will be at F&M to introduce her documentary, which follows five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times—from their sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post-Soviet Russia. Together, these childhood classmates paint a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionment of those raised behind the Iron Curtain.

A Q&A will follow the viewing of the film.

This event is open to the public.

Free; no tickets required.
