Links Hall cofounder Bob Eisen split for NYC in 2000 and for the past six years has divided his time between New York and Russia. Tonight he’ll make his first appearance at the performance studio’s new location, where he and Kristina Isabelle present a duet created in Russia, recreated in New York, and now re-recreated for Chicago.
Tonight Gene Siskel Film Center screens The Kill Team, Dan Krauss's documentary about Adam Winfield, who was himself put on trial for war crimes after exposing the activities of his fellow soldiers. A discussion with defense attorney Eric Montalvo and Human Rights Watch advocate Andrea Prasow follows the screening.
