Image from the movie Garpastum
Russian director Alexei German, Jr. excels in the depiction of “ordinary people trying to live their private lives in times of historical calamities that are far beyond their comprehension and control” (Tony Anemone, College of William and Mary). A stunning recreation of the look and atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Saint Petersburg, his Garpastum takes place during a critical phase in Russia’s history, the period between the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (the catalyst for the outbreak of World War I) and the revolutions of 1917. Indifferent to the tumultuous events at home and abroad, two middle-class brothers pursue their obsession with football and girls. In Russian language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)

Series sponsors include IU’s Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center, Institute for European Studies, Russian and East European Institute, Center for the Study of the Middle East, Center for the Study of Global Change, Islamic Studies Program and IU Cinema.
