The film series "Post-Soviet Cinema: Art, Dissent and Social Justice" will showcase three recent films from the former Soviet countries, which articulate topical cultural and political concerns with global resonance.

The Thursday Nov. 16 screening will feature a documentary about the 2014 civil unrest in Ukraine, and it will be accompanied by a presentation by the director Olha Onyshko and a commentary by Professor Mark von Hagen.

The Festival overall is part of Professor Ana Hedberg Olenina's Fall 2017 course RUS/SLC/FMS 494 "Post-Soviet Cinema: Art, Dissent and Social Justice," and the students in this course will be actively involved in preparing the festival materials (promotional flyers, social media ads) as well short oral introductions for each film.
