Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, Taylor Hackford's "White Nights” (1985) follows the gripping tale of two men from opposite sides of the Iron Curtain, brought together by their shared passion for dance. With electrifying performances by Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines, "White Nights" explores themes of friendship, betrayal, and the triumph of the human spirit. Post-screening discussion will be led by Davis Center visiting scholar Dr. Ilya Vidrin.
