This is a compelling story of a grandfather, son, and grandson who are all acting rebels against the Latin American government who have been fighting a rural insurgency on the country. As the soldiers descend down to cut off the rebels, the family passes the checkpoint with the grandfather’s violin on his back claiming they must tend to their corn crop. The commanding officer that allows the family to pass insists on a daily violin lesson, unbeknownst to him that the instrument is being used as a carrier of ammunition. Discussion following the film will be led by Nicole Esquibel, Assistant Professor of Film & Digital Media. Food and drink will be provided.

Feeling stressed out and overwhelmed? We have just the solution for you. Campus Ministry is offering Adoration in the chapel from 8-10pm. Think because you aren’t Catholic you can’t come? Nonsense! Adoration is simply an opportunity for you to relax while spending time in peace and quiet. QUIET isn’t for you? From 9-10pm, a live band will start playing songs you can either sing along to, or simply sit and enjoy.
Don’t have 2 hours to spare? No problem! Just come for as much time as you can from 10 minutes to 1 hour. We know it is getting to the point in the semester where we are overwhelmed with school, sports, and work and just need a little time to slow down, live in the moment, and appreciate all we do have. All are welcome!
