Our new member Max, who is a Russian-speaking filmmaker, asked me to share his invite with the group. He is holding an event at AFI for Karaganda -- a film about a prisoner in a Soviet labor camp. It's free and complete with food, cocktails, and parking. Lots of Russian speakers are expected, so might be right up our alley.

P.S. I may or may not be able to attend on the 13th but please feel free to coordinate with each other in my absence.
