One Man Dies a Million Times

April 21, 3:00 PM4:30 PM

With a Presentation by Will Bonsall of the Scatterseed Project, this screening is the final event in the three-part Science on Screen® series!

In the midst of the Siege of Leningrad, two botanists, Alyssa and Maksim, work tirelessly to protect a seed bank and its invaluable contents: seeds of edible plants from around the globe that are essential to the development of modern agriculture. With the future of Russia’s food supply on the line, the pair defend the nation’s stockpile from swarms of hungry rodents, enemies of the state, their nation’s own starving population, and even each other. As Leningrad is cut off from the rest of the world, Alyssa and Maksim slowly discover the strength to carry on in the love they find in one another.

(Not Rated, 92 min., 2019)

Admission: $9 for adults, $8 for children. Free for Waterville Creates members. Eligible for the Youth Arts Access Fund.
