Russian Film Night
This fall 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.
Culture, Art, and Dancing Lessons
Every fall, we help to put on Latin Dance Night with MSC CAMAC. This event includes the history of various Latin American dances, demonstrations, and a chance for you to practice!
