Ivan Denisovich - Part 5

The zeks on Ivan Denisovich's team devour their lunch soup (and sop it up with stale bread saved from an earlier meal).  

Awarded an extra bowl of food, Ivan gives it to someone who would otherwise not eat.

Taking a break, zeks are telling stories and debating the merits of artistic works (such as Sergei Eisenstein's famous film about Ivan the Terrible).  It's a brief respite between their back-breaking work.
