Film Series: Russian Historical Landmarks in FilmRSS
The Kotlas-Waterville Area Sister City Connection will offer a film and discussion series, Russian Historical Landmarks in Film, in the 2012 Winter/Spring Session of the Mid-Maine Adult Community Education. The class will highlight four key periods in Russian history: the formation of the infant Russian state (13th century); the turbulent revolutionary period (early 20th century); World War II and the devastation of Russia; and Stalin's infamous GULAG (system of penal labor camps). The films are Russian classics, and the directors are world-renowned. Our series concludes with a festive Russian dinner.
