STARTALK Russian Student Program Alumni:

You're invited to come back to the UW for a special opportunity to meet other Russian heritage speakers (and students of Russian), view a great Russian film, hear a brief presentation about the historical context of the film, and participate in a post-film discussion in person and online. (Participants who complete the online discussion forum will receive a special STARTALK Certificate). Invite your family and friends to come too! We'll have refreshments and it's FREE. Put your Russian to good use and have fun at the same time.
