Movie Screening at NYUAD: The Seagull

Organised by New York University Abu Dhabi Institute

NYU Abu Dhabi will screen "The Seagull" movie, directed by Michael Mayer in 2017. Based on the play of the same name by Anton Chekhov, an aging actress named Irina Arkadina pays summer visits to her brother Pjotr Nikolayevich Sorin and her son Konstantin at a country estate. On one occasion she brings her lover Boris Trigorin, a successful novelist. Nina, a free and innocent girl on a neighboring estate who is in a relationship with Konstantin, falls in love with Boris.

Anton Chekhov was a Russian playwright and short-story writer, who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics, and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critic. Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre.
