Invisible Men Show

Courtesy of Rilwan Babajide ’16: 

Come join the Invisible Men Collective for a night of community performances as we focus on the value of Sankofa, “to reach back and get it.” Throughout the show, we hope to reflect on our history both at Wesleyan and Abroad and we seek to better understand our potential for the future. The night is sure to be exhilarating, challenging, and thought provoking.

Film Series: The World of Apu

1959. India. Dir: Satyajit Ray. With Soumitra Chatterjee. 105 min. 

Melding inspiration from Renoir and Italian Neorealism with a distinctly Indian artistry, Ray’s beautiful cinematic craft has in turn influenced generations of international filmmakers. In this humble and powerfully relatable tale, a bright young man in Calcutta saves for university and works on a novel until a sudden marriage alters his path forever.
