Screening of: The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!

When: Thu., May 11, 7-9 p.m. 2017

Set during the Cold War era of nuclear hair-trigger brinkmanship, without hostile intent, a Soviet sub runs aground on a sandbar off of a fictional New England . As the submarine crew tries to extricate themselves, chaos ensues, and hysteria and paranoia reign among the inhabitants of the nearby village. The 1966 film had a profound impact on both American and Soviet leaders. It is one of the few films actually mentioned in the Congressional record.
