July 31, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
A Translator tells the true story of a Russian Literature professor at the University of Havana who is ordered to work as a translator for the child victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster when they are sent to Cuba for medical treatment in the late 1980s. Torn from the abstract world of academia and forced into the relentlessly real world of medicine, the college professor must find a way to connect with the kids and serve as an empathic translator between the doctors and the children’s parents.
