Film Screening: Unsent Letter at the Russian Embassy (Updated 11/12/13)
6:00 pm – 10:30 pm, Thursday, November 14 (2013), Off Campus
In Mikhail Kalatozov's classic *Unsent Letter* (1959) a guide and three geologists search for diamonds. After a long and perilous journey through beautiful Siberian wilderness, a terrible forest fire traps them and triggers a struggle for survival to deliver a map of their findings to Moscow. The screening coincides with the AU Katzen Museum's exhibit "Siberia in the Eyes of Russian Photographers," which the IRC is proud to support.
