MEUCE European Film Series: "Burnt By the Sun" (FIU)
|Venue:||FIU Modesto A. Maidique Campus, GC 140|
The Miami-Florida European Union Center of Excellence, FIU, the European Studies Program, and the European Student Association, organize a European film series on the topic of European politics.
"Burnt By the Sun": Stalinist Russia, circa 1930, is recreated in this Russian-French film that focuses on a small, elite gathering of family and friends who appreciate the idealism of Stalin's visions because they do not have to experience its darker side of gulags and purges. The story focuses upon a single day in Soviet revolutionary hero Serguei Kotov's life. Kotov lives an idyllic country life with his lovely wife Maroussia, and their feisty daughter Nadia. He is highly respected by the locals. On this day, the Kotovs are visited by the roguishly handsome Dimitri, who was a former lover of Maroussia. Dimitri is on a dark mission that may have profound effects on Kotov's peaceful, happy, and idealistic existence.
