Join us for a film screening in Russian with English subtitles. "The Ascent" (ВОСХОЖДЕНИЕ) is from 1977 and directed by Larisa Shepitko. The runtime is 111 minutes.
Susan Sontag, "Dark Lady" of American intellectual life for over four decades, described this story of two Soviet guerrilla fighters captured during the Nazi occupation of Belarus as the most affecting film about the horror of war she knew.
The film will be screened at both 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
Join us to learn how to answer challenging questions and present yourself in a professional manner. As a reminder, students who are fulfilling their Amherst Select Internship Program requirements must attend an interviewing workshop. Non-Amherst Select students are welcome to attend!
