KOLYAThe Slavic Club presents KOLYA, the Golden Globe and the Academy Award winner as best foreign language film of 1996 on Thursday, February 7, 2013, at 6 - 8:30 p.m., in Fahy 236.

Kolya, a Czech film set in the 1980's, is about the transforming relationship between a Russian boy & a rascally Czech bachelor who is humanized by the responsibility of looking after the abandoned child. In Soviet Czechoslovakia, middle-aged concert cellist and bachelor Frantisek Louka (Zdenek Sverak) is strapped for cash, reduced to playing funerals, when a chance relationship results in his caring for a 5-year-old Russian boy, Kolya, (Andrei Chalimon). Political turmoil is imminent on the eve of the Velvet Revolution, while Louka's own emotional upheaval is just as unpredictable in this heartwarming, Oscar-and-Golden Globe-winning tale.

Everyone is welcome! Free Slavic refreshments will be served!
