We are thrilled to announce and invite you to a brand-new Eastern European film series sponsored in collaboration between the Russian and East European Studies Department and the Harnwell College House! The film series will be showing both classic and new Eastern European cinema on Thursday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. throughout the fall semester at the RTL in Harnwell College House. Our hope is that through this series students will be introduced to under-represented Eastern European art, culture, and history. There will be a short introduction and post-film discussion led by Comparative Literature Ph.D. student Ash Maria (he/they) at each screening.
Thanks to Faculty Fellow Ivanco Talevski for bringing us this series!
