Platypus film screening: Nixon in China (USA, 1987/2011)
Join Platypus @ UIC for a month-long film screening series on the Russian revolution of 1917 and its legacy.
In our last screening, we will show you the New York Metropolitan Opera performance of John Adams' 1987 opera Nixon in China. The opera deals with President Nixon's visit to Communist China in 1972, which is widely credited with opening up the country--and perhaps massively changing global politics ever since for good.
We will serve pizza, snacks, and beverages during the intermission!
