Russian film festival
In the fall of 2016 we played Save My Speech Forever, a film about 20th Century Russian poet Osip Madelshtam. The film’s Director of Photography was present to discuss the movie and the message it carried. Over 200 people attended the event and we thank the Department of International Studies, Film Studies, and the Houston Russian Cultural Center for their help.
