Film Screening: Cloud-Paradise (Russia, 1990)
We are kindly inviting all interested students and colleagues to the seventh film screening in the series of Post-Socialist Screenings at the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages (ILOS) this autumn.
About the film
In the Russian comedy Cloud-Paradise (by Nikolay Dostal) we meet Kolya, who spontaneously announces that he plans to leave for the Far East. His decision wins unanimous support, and he becomes a local hero. Kolya then writes a resignation letter and leaves his hometown on a bus – however, he is on his way to nowhere.
Where and when
December 5, 6.00 PM, auditorium 3, Sophus Bugges hus. Tea and coffe will be served. All interested are welcome.
About Post-Socialist Screenings
After 1989, people in post-socialist countries faced extensive systemic changes on the economic and political levels, which affected their public and private lives. Sometimes the borders in-between were swept away relentlessly, leaving people behind. The film screenings shown at ILOS this autumn are about people who lived through socialism, and those who are trying to find their place and their identity in post-socialist society.
The Post-Socialist Screenings are organized by Anastasia K. Røen and Mónika Dánél, with the support of Centre for Slavic and Easter European Studies, project Probing the Boundaries of the (Trans)National and Elisa Storchi and Randi Cathinka Neverdal from University of Oslo Library.
