Summer Film Series 2019: A Slave Of Love (Russia, 1976)
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: Sandburg Theatre, University Union
Description: 7/17 – A SLAVE OF LOVE (Russia, 1976)

Filmmakers in Russia in 1917 attempt to complete a superficial silent melodrama, while seemingly indifferent to the gathering clouds of revolution. Events take a serious turn when the production’s self-absorbed lead actress gets involved with a cameraman who is working with the Bolsheviks. In Russian with English subtitles.

All screenings will be held in the Sandburg Theater, Western Illinois University Union. Films begin at 5:30
p.m. and there is no admission charge. Many films will be preceded by selected short subjects. All films are
from the private collection of Western Illinois film professor Richard Ness, who serves as host. The series is
sponsored by WIU’s Film Studies Program and the Department of English.
