Free Screening

Wednesday, April 4

Russia, 1936: revolutionary hero Colonel Kotov is
spending an idyllic summer in his dacha
with his young wife and six-year-old daughter Nadia
and other assorted family and
friends. Things change dramatically with the
unheralded arrival of Cousin Dmitri from
Moscow, who charms the women and little Nadia with his
games and pianistic bravura. But
Kotov isn't fooled: this is the time of Stalin's
repression, with telephone calls in the
middle of the night spelling doom - and he knows that
Dmitri isn't paying a social call.

1994. 152 min. Russian.
