FilmSoc Week 11: THE ASCENT
14 October, 2015
Old Geology Lecture Theatre
Dir. Larisa Sheptiko - 1977 - USSR
This week we’re taking a darker turn with The Ascent, a WWII-set Soviet war drama. Shot in crisp black-and-white, Larisa Shepitko’s final film is a harrowing and beautifully poetic interrogation of the moral dilemmas of wartime.
Find us on Wednesday in the Old Geology Lecture Theatre! We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
FREE for members: $5 for Access cardholders. Annual membership is $5 for Access cardholders!
