Film Series: Bandit Queen

1994. India/UK. Dir: Shekhar Kapur. With Seema Biswas. 119 min.

Completed just as the real “Bandit Queen,” Phoolan Devi, was released from 11 years in prison, this biopic created a scandal when Devi – enraged by being portrayed as a “victim” of rape – threatened to set herself on fire outside the theater.  Before the film, Gayathri Khemadasa will play piano selections from her Phoolan Devi opera.  Prof. William Pinch (History) will lead a post-film panel discussion.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free

Film Screening: 8: The Mormon Propostion

Film board schmilm board, amiright? Will Fesperman ’15 sends word of a quite moving documentary that is being shown for free at the Career Resquash Center this Friday night:

Come see this poignant documentary about the mormon church’s campaign against LGBT rights and their funding of Proposition 8 in California that stripped marriage rights from gay couples. There will be a discussion after the film for anyone who wants to stay and talk about it.

Game changer: “There will be rainbow goldfish.”

Date: Friday, April 6
Time: 8 pm
Place: Career Center (I assume in the big room with the TV?)
Cost: Free
