REACT to FILM Presents: Who is Dayani Cristal?


Mara Woods-Robinson ’16 writes in about an awesome screening happening tomorrow:

“An anonymous body in the Arizona desert sparks the beginning of a real-life human drama. The search for identity leads us back across a continent to seek out the people left behind and the meaning of a mysterious tattoo.”

Like film? Activism? Free food? Then join us on Wednesday night for a screening of Who Is Dayani Cristal?, a 2013 award-winning documentary film about immigration politics. The screening will be followed by a live Google Hangout with director Marc Silver. And there will be snacks!

REACT to FILM is a nonprofit organization with chapters in colleges across the nation. We organize screenings of documentary films about social issues, with the hope of generating discussion around the issues and providing the opportunity for students to become involved.

Date: Wednesday, February 26 (tomorrow)
Time: 7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Place: PAC 001

Welcome Back Party/Prospective Spanish Major Lunch

Siri “I was famous before the iPhone” Carr ’15 wants you to estudiar el español:

Did you just get back from abroad? Are you interested in the Spanish 3cierb-1
major (or the too-long-for-your-mom-to-remember “Hispanic Literatures and Cultures” major) at Wes? Come on over to the Romance Languages Building (300 High St.) at noon on Thursday for UNA COMIDA GRATIS and to hear about the abroad experience, cry about how much you miss it, and mingle with prospective/current HISP majors at Wes! There will be besos y abrazos to be shared by all. ¡Olé!

***Note to CURRENT HISP MAJORS: We will be taking photos of each student in the major for the bulletin board in the Common Room so please come by if you don’t want us to use your awkward original WesID photo!

Date: 2/27

Time: 12 pm to 1 pm

Place: Common Room @ 300 High St.
