A needle slides under the skin, pierces a vein, and blood snakes through coiled plastic tube into a bag. Blood donors wince, look away, or try to act nonchalant. Others swoon. The blood continues to flow. Filmed in black-and-white, and set in small-town north-western Russia, Blood is a remarkable, multi-layered documentary that follows the nurses of a mobile blood collection unit as they travel through the desolate, post-industrial landscape, often on dangerously snowy roads. Directed by Alina Rudnitskaya.

Released in 2013. Run time: 59 minutes.

A discussion will follow the film. This film is part of the Russian and East European Movie Series. Sponsored by the Russian Studies program and the Office of Cross Disciplinary Studies and Diversity Engagement.
