Film screening: My Perestroika (2010)
Still from My Perestroika
With a talk by director Robin Hessman
7:00 pm UWM Union Theatre
2200 E Kenwood Blvd
Cosponsored with UWM's Sam & Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies and School of Information Studies (SOIS)

My Perestroika follows five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times—from their sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post-Soviet Russia. Together, these childhood classmates paint a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionment of those raised behind the Iron Curtain.

The film will be introduced by its director, Robin Hessman. After the screening, Ms. Hessman will participate in a discussion of the film and current events in Russia.
