Russian Film Screening: "Legend №17" • Легенда №17

This film is based on real life events and tells a story of Soviet hockey player Valeri Kharlamov’s career and the first match of the Summit Series between the USSR and Canada in 1972. Directed by Nikolai Lebedev and completed in 2013, the film’s runtime is 134 minutes.

The film is in Russian with English subtitles. The film will be screened at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.

"Gossamer"

The Department of Theater and Dance presents Gossamer, written and directed by Sophina Flores ’20. Gossamer follows three children and their mother through a dissociative fantasy world they have created as a response to trauma, trapped in the liminal space between death and life. Through surrealist movement, Gossamer carries us through a distorted narrative of a broken home—a family grappling with forgiveness, acceptance and hope for recovery, while facing the truth that no one is innocent within the cycle of abuse.

Set design by Laura Carty ’20, costume design by Lorelei Dietz ’20, lighting design by Lauren Thompson, projection design by Brenna Kaplan ’22, and sound design by Christianna Mariano ’21 and Alistair Edwards ’22

Starring Sam Beach, Emily Fedor, Leah Folpe, Nick Govus, Eli Quastler, Andrew Rosevear, Caroline Seitz and Renz Toledo

Tickets are free; reservations are recommended: call (413) 542-2277 or email theater@amherst.edu.
