Masha Vlasova: The Mothers
Senior Presentation Screening
Rose Auditorium, 41 Cooper Square
8:00pm - 9:00pm
In her film-essay The Mothers, Masha Vlasova creates a fragmented narrative in which historic, literary, cultural and personal narratives develop around a single image - a family photograph taken in 1989. This year signified great political shifts in Eastern Europe. Through archival footage, voiceover narration and interviews, Vlasova examines the split of the Berlin wall and the splintered histories of underground publishing samizdat, perestroika and the coup of 1991 as well as her personal spilt of immigration.
Free and open to the public
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
