1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Directed by Mark Donskoy
Varenka is a starry-eyed young Moscow teacher who accepts a post in a forsaken Siberian village. The story follows her career from the pre-revolutionary Czarist regime to the end of WWII. It is a period of great unrest in the world and shattering personal heartbreak for Varenka, who loses her husband in the war. She can take some comfort in knowing at the end that she has profoundly affected the lives of all her students.
