CETRA Movie Night: The Woman with the 5 Elephants

Join us Tuesday, August 6 at International House in Philadelphia for a free showing of The Woman with the 5 ElephantsThe movie begins at 7:00 PM and will be followed by a small networking event. The Woman with the 5 Elephants, directed by Vadim Jendreyko and nominated for Best Documentary in the 2009 European Film Awards. The film tells the story of Svetlana Geier, a Ukrainian-born German translator known for her unprecedented translation of Dostoyevsky’s five largest works. Her haunting past plays a part in her successful career in Germany; her story is woven into the text of her translations. Her inspiring story teaches us to live attentively, to listen for the cadences, to care about the small things. And above all, to “always translate with your nose in the air”.
