Film director Kevin McNeer will present Stalin Thought of You
Richmond native and film director Kevin McNeer will present an in-depth look at
Russia’s greatest political cartoonist, Boris Efimov, in the documentary, Stalin
Thought of You, on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in the Topping
Room of Old Chapel.
McNeer became friends with Efimov after moving to Moscow to pursue a career in documentary
films. He was able to interview Efimov and capture his story before his death at
age 108. Stalin Thought of You includes an interview with Efimov and home videos
of Stalin and the cartoonist. The film depicts the tension that builds as Efimov
suspects his journalist brother is killed under Stalin’s order.
McNeer will be available for a Q & A session after the screening. For more information,

This event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Committee
on Assemblies and Special Events (CASE) and by The Gibson Fund.
