Russian Film Event - In Memoriam, Alexei German

My Friend Ivan Lapshin (1984) - Screening and discussion

April 26, 2013 - 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm (already occurred)

In late February, Russians bid farewell to a man many considered to be the country’s greatest living filmmaker. Largely under-appreciated in the West, Alexei German’s films delighted in their complexity, tones, textured aesthetics, and the absence of simple heroes or villains. "My Friend Ivan Lapshin" (1984) is a gritty, beautiful and a strange mixture of realism and dreamish images. The film will be screened and then discussed by professors from the Five Colleges, led by Polina Barskova of Hampshire College.
