Russian Movie Series: Prisoner of the Mountains
March 1, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European is hosting a film series on Russian war movies.
The experience of war often boils down to brief human encounters, private meaning and actions that reflect personal, not ideological motivations. Russian director and screenwriter Sergei Bodrov reinforces this point with sure-handed subtlety in his moving update of Leo Tolstoy’s story, Prisoner of the Caucasus. While on patrol in the Caucasus mountains, two Russian soldiers are taken prisoner by the head of a Chechen village, who wants to trade them for his own son, who is held captive by the Russians.Click here for more information
