The ICA Summer Film Festival features The Great Famine tonight at 7:00 PM in Building 200 (History Corner), Room 002 (basement). It is based on Bertrand Patenaude's book The Big show in Bololand: the American relief expedition to Soviet Russia in the famine of 1921. This massive two-year relief campaign, was championed by Herbert Hoover, director of the American Relief Administration. Five million Soviet citizens died in this disaster.
