To complement this year's One Read program, Ragtag hosts a free screening of "Russian Ark" by Alexander Sokurov. This experimental feature-length film was the first of its kind to be shot in a single take. You'll follow an unnamed narrator as he travels through the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg and explores three centuries of Russian history. The entire film was shot in one day on a single camera, and displays 33 rooms of the museum with a cast of over 2,000 actors and three orchestras. "If cinema is sometimes dreamlike, then every edit is an awakening. 'Russian Ark' spins a daydream made of centuries," said Roger Ebert. (2002, unrated, 95 minutes)

A discussion will follow with some interesting and exciting panelists. The panel will be recorded and posted on the Ragtag website.

The doors to the cinema will open at 6:30 p.m. and a limited number of seats will be available, due to social-distancing requirements. Free tickets can be picked up at the Ragtag box office (or reserved online) starting at noon the day of the show. Limit of four free tickets per person. All slots have been filled for the free streaming option which was offered.

See the Ragtag website, www.ragtagcinema.org, for more information. Co-sponsored by Ragtag Cinema and the Museum of Art and Archaeology.
