International Film Series: Prisoner of the Mountains Bookmark and Share

5 p.m. @ The Coastal Theater, Lib Jackson Studio Union A-110

Sergei Bodrov’s 1996 film, an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s 1872 novella “The Prisoner in the Caucasus,” explores the conflict between Russian soldiers and their Chechen captors. The film was shot on location, not far from the ongoing First Chechen War, in which Russian forces sought to assert control over the mountainous regions of Chechnya. Nataliya Alekseyenko, faculty member in the Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, leads a discussion following the screening of the film, which is in Russian with English subtitles.
