Accidental Army Screening and Discussion
October 21, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
It’s the most amazing story you never heard. In the chaos of World War I, tens of thousands of Czech and Slovak POWs switched sides to become an army fighting for the Allies: the Czechoslovak Legion. Suddenly, caught up in the Russian Revolution, they had to fight their way across Siberia, capturing the Trans-Siberian railway, half the Czar’s gold, and the heart of a new nation. Almost erased from history by 50 years of communism, this incredible story lives again in the film Accidental Army: The Amazing True Story of the Czechoslovak Legion.
The documentary’s creative director, Bruce Bendinger, will lead a discussion following the screening.
