Students will explain the major moral and ethical dilemmas of these issues and will evaluate the issues on the basis of their own personal value system or the value system present in the Russian society of the time and revealed by the movies. This is the second of two papers. This paper is on Russian CULTURE.

Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of a point of view characterizing a non-Western culture, including awareness of basic beliefs that are not typical of most Western cultures. Students will be able to explain how a given institution of symbol system in a nonwestern culture enhances the viability of that culture or serves the interests or purpose of some social group or category within that culture.  This class is called Russia In the Movies.
