Join the Center for the Study of Europe for a screening of The Wedding (2000), directed by Pavel Lungin. The film will be introduced by Yuri Corrigan, Assistant Professor of Russian & Comparative Literature. "In a small mining village near Moscow the wedding of Michka and Tania is being prepared. Tania, Michka’s child love, is back from Moscow. In the family of Michka, this wedding does not delight anybody. The father, hero of the village, sees all the guests he’ll have to feed. The grandfather sees, him,with an evil eye “this creature” entering the family and the mother cries for the fate of her son. But the wedding starts, without money, maybe without bride… A true spectacle where all is possible, whereas worst or best, where the limits vanish, where the drama is as close as happiness."
