Performance Studio

Based on the true story of the American socialist writers Jack Reed and Louise Bryant, who visited Russia during its revolution and later formed the Communist Labor Party of America, Reds won 22 film awards, including the Oscars for Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

On the occasion of the Russian Revolution’s 100-year anniversary, join us for a special screening and panel, featuring retired civil-rights lawyer Ed Helm; Elka Schumann, whose grandfather acted in the film; and Alla Youdina, who was born in the Soviet Union. Moderated by Rob Mermin.
