From Rizky Rahadianto ’15:
Just like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Solo (nee Organa) bravely fought the Empire, so did Wesflix fight the power of those opposed to promiscuous filmmaking.
A small collective of sophomores have banded together to present a collection of pieces done solely out of love for the craft and dedication to the arts. Each work is a student production from start to finish, the vision of each artist in its purest form.
You could treat this as your pre-game to the Digital Thesis Film Screening and Film Ball in your filmy weekend. We wouldn’t be offended.
The Argus bookies have good money on Movie 43 coming from behind for a cross-category sweep.

An opportunity to watch a great film and eat snazzy food from Katy Thompson ’15:
Sign House, WoCoHo, Malcolm X House, Film Hall and multiple Resident Advisors, have come together to put on a film viewing of Compensation. It premiered in 2000 at Sundance and focuses on deaf culture and racial issues.
There will also be Typhoon, so come watch an awesome movie and eat some Thai food.
“Compensation presents two unique African-American love stories between a deaf woman and a hearing man. Inspired by a poem written by Paul Laurence Dunbar, this moving narrative shares their struggle to overcome racism, disability and discrimination. An important film on African-American deaf culture, Davis innovatively incorporates silent film techniques (such as title cards and vintage photos) to make the piece accessible to hearing and deaf viewers alike, and to share the vast possibilities of language and communication.”
Date: Thursday, October 11
Time: 7 pm
Place: Exley 150
