17:05Russian Filmathon / A Selection of Classic Russian Films
Russian/Soviet science fiction movies (with all of the related
sub-genres – fantasy, utopia/dystopia, quest, etc.).
Each of the monthly screenings will be preceded with a short Introduction
and followed by a discussion (in English).
All films will be shown with English subtitles.The series has been created to commemorate the dates of several
extraordinary events in world and Russian history.
The year 2011 is significant! It is: the 300th anniversary of Mikhail Lomonosov’s birth,
the 90th anniversary of the birth of Stanislaw Lem,
the 145th anniversary of the birth of H.G. Wells,
the 145th anniversary of the birth of F. Nansen, and perhaps most notable,
the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s pioneering space flight.
All of these dates have very strong ties
to Russian history and culture.
