March 11, Monday — Films: Putin’s Revenge I and Putin’s Revenge II
1 and 7 p.m. at Peacock Hall
Putin’s Revenge is a riveting investigation of how the U.S. struggled to confront Vladimir Putin over Russian involvement in the 2016 election, how revenge may have motivated Putin to target American democracy and the U.S. responses under Presidents Obama and Trump.
Part One of Putin’s Revenge is a portrait of what makes the Russian leader tick, and the events that shaped his belief that the U.S. has sought to undermine Russia dating back to the fall of the Soviet Union.
Part Two delves into the riveting story of Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. election, and how and why the Obama administration struggled to confront Putin about both election interference and, before that, Putin’s actions in Ukraine.
