Carleton College’s Gender and Sexuality Center will host a public screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary film, “The Invisible War,” on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Weitz Center for Creativity Cinema.  This groundbreaking investigative film uncovers the prevalence of sexual assault within the U.S. military. This event is free and open to the public.

 

“The Invisible War” was recently nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2013 Academy Awards; it premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received the U.S. Documentary Audience Award. The film looks at the epidemic of rape within the military—a female U.S. soldier in a combat zone is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 19,000 violent sex crimes in the military in 2010.

2013 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature, How to Survive a Plague is the story of two coalitions—ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group)—whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition.

With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and '90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.

Carleton College will present its annual student-produced and performed production of Even Ensler’s “Vagina Monologues” on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel. The public is invited and there is a suggested donation of $5 to $15 at the door. All proceeds will benefit The Hope Center in Faribault and the V-Day Spotlight Campaign (www.vday.org), a global movement to end violence against women and girls.

 

First performed in 1994, playwright and activist Eve Ensler’s play “The Vagina Monologues” “offered the world a piece of art like nothing it had seen before,” says student coordinator Lauren Chow ’14 (Weston, Mass.). The ground breaking production was based on dozens of interviews Ensler conducted with women, addressing women's sexuality and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse. The result was a new conversation about and with women.

An exhibit revealing a children's electronic talking storybook titled, "It Happened One Night on the Milky Way Trail," written and illustrated by Northfield artist Tom Frank, will be held at the Paradise Center for the Arts in Faribault, February 26 through April 16. A family-friendly artist’s reception with kids’ activities and live acoustics with the video book's musicians is planned for March 1, from 5-7 p.m. Visitors to the exhibit will be able to view the creative process -- from hand drawing characters, to developing a storyboard, to writing copy and adding colorized scenes to the finished production.

Start: Mar 11 2013 7:00 pm
