Event description: 

Set during the Russian Civil War, Tale of the Don follows the exploits of machine-gunner Yakov Shibalok, whose loyalty to the Soviet cause is challenged by a brazen Cossack woman. Vladimir Fetin’s cinematic adaptation brilliantly captures the ideological dilemmas and unique oral qualities of Mikhail Sholokhov’s original literary material.
