Dr. Zhivago, released in 1965, is a Russian epic set just before and in the years following the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the movie traces the life of surgeon-poet Yury Zhivago. Married to an upper-class girl who is devoted to him, yet in love with an unfortunate woman who becomes his muse, Zhivago is torn between fidelity and passion. Sympathetic with the revolution but shaken by the wars and purges, he struggles to retain his individualism as a humanist amid the spirit of collectivism.

The event is a fundraising effort for Arts Enter, a non-profit fine and performing arts center. Part of Arts Enters’ mission is to provide education and appreciation for the arts through quality performance, instruction and events in our geographically isolated community. Events and classes are scheduled throughout the year.
