Event Details

Perhaps the best proof of the relevance of historical dramas
—Pravda

 

Isaac Babel's writings are subversive masterpieces, challenging the ideology of the early Soviet Union and resulting in his arrest and execution in 1940. 75 years later, his grandson works to piece together the story of the grandfather he never knew, amid lingering traces of a turbulent history and modern-day conflicts in Ukraine and Russia today.

 

Andrei Malaev-Babel, Isaac Babel's grandson, will introduce the film and lead a post-show discussion.

 

This program is part of Sunday Cinema, in which 5 fascinating films about Jewish lives are shown over 4 Sundays in January and February. See spertus.edu/film to find out more.
