Eleonore Dupuis tells the story of how she first knew about her father, a Russian soldier. Half a lifetime later she starts the search for her Russian roots, which has lasted for nearly 20 years. She learns the Russian language, undertakes many trips to Russia, makes new friends and people to help her at her search. During her research, she gets more and more familiar with the Russian culture, the people and the language. Thus the search for her origins turns into the search for her own identity.
Eleonore Dupuis will be introduced by Dr. Regina Khidekel, the director of the Russian-American Cultural Center in New York.
