Assignment 1

Иди и смотри, 1985

Reading: Materials from Judt book and oral history reader that Lucia has copied for you and posted.

Film: "Come and See" ("Иди и смотри", perhaps better translated "Go and Watch"), by Elem Klimov, 1985, 142 minutes (disc that Aron has taken from me has only part 1 - watch online instead). Take notes while you watch the film and be prepared to write short comments about it at the beginning of sections next week.

Here you can watch the entire thing online:
