Storm Over Asia (1928)

Filmed on location in the Siberian region of Buryatia, Vsevolod Pudovkin's Storm Over Asia tells the story of a poor Mongol fur trapper who escapes the indignities of Western imperialism and makes a violent entry into a new life as a revolutionary. Joining us to introduce the film and lead discussion is Dr. Rae Dachille, a Buddhism specialist in the UA departments of Religious Studies and Classics and East Asian Studies.
