Showing through January 12 - "How the Richest Man in Russia Became Its Most Famous Prisoner" from the Film Society of Minnesota
Where: St. Anthony Main Theater - Screen 3
When: See the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul website for a full listing of January 6 - 12 show times.
This exhilarating documentary chronicles Mikhail Khodorkovsky's transformation from a self-proclaimed socialist to a fully realized capitalist – also recounting the stunning turn of events that made him one of world's most famous political prisoners.
Weaving together in-depth interviews (including the first on-camera exchange with Khodorkovsky since his arrest), archival material, and stylized computer-animated reenactments, Tuschi shows us a man who embodies the paradox that is modern Russia – condemning the very corruption that helped make his fortune and envisioning a new Russia with respect for the rule of law.
Each Monday morning we provide an easy to reference list of events and activities for the week ahead in the Mill City neighborhood. Submit your events here...

The Soap Factory is proud to be supported by a team of over 400 volunteers and 20 interns each year. In 2011 volunteers completed over 14,000 hours of work, supporting programs like The Ten Second Film Festival, The Amazing Adventures of the Corporate Wizard in the Land of LARP, The Haunted Basement and all the regular exhibitions and building improvements.
Applications are now being accepted for 2012 volunteers and interns.
All prospective year-round volunteers must attend a New Volunteer Orientation session. The next orientation session is scheduled for March 10. Internships at The Soap Factory are a terrific way to explore working at a nonprofit art gallery. Every year over 20 interns work closely with Soap Factory staff, board members and exhibiting artists.
See the website for application deadlines and other details.
