Dr. Larry Jost of the UC Philosophy Department will discuss the views of moral choice depicted in the film: "Allen digs deep into the psyche of one of three brothers raised in the same religious heritage, an ophthalmologist named "Judah" played brilliantly by Martin Landau, as he is caught in an ethical dilemma of his own making and how he escapes punishment while being guilty of a great crime."
Dr. Alla Baskakova, psychiatrist at the VA Medical Center, will focus on St. Petersburg as a character in the Dostoevsky novel. "St. Petersburg is the city where Dostoevsky was living for many years and where most of his novels took place. I will talk about the common element in the novel's characters and the spirit of the city and I will show photographs of the places pictured in the novel- where the character of Raskolnikov lived and committed his crime."
Check the flyer for links to a film clip depicting Judah's confrontation with his religious upbringing and to a book excerpt with audio file describing Raskolnikov's premonitory dream.
The APT now has an Epson MovieMate projector for uninterrupted viewing.
We hope you join us.
