Dear friends, it turns out there was a mistake on RCC's website and the event is on Monday, not on Sunday! I just called them to ask if there are English subtitles (the answer is "no" unfortunately) and also found out that they made a mistake with the date on the website, they are correcting it right now. Hope it still works for some of you, although I realize that at 4pm on a Monday many people might be still at work. But if you can make it, I'm sure you'd enjoy the movie and hopefully the discussion afterwards!
Those of us nostalgic about our childhood when we used to read "Povest' o Nastoyashem Cheloveke" ("The Story of a Real Man") at school, and those of us who never read this classic Soviet novella or seen the movie - let's meet up on Monday, March 18th at 3.45pm at Russian Cultural Center (1825 Phelps St. NW) to watch this wonderful film in Russian about resilience and strength of human spirit that transcends ideologies and cultures.
We could discuss the movie afterwards over lunch or coffee, since RCC is located just a few blocks north of Dupont Circle neighborhood.
