From Elijah Jimenez ’18:
This documentary style play, written by Jen Marlowe, is about Aseel Asleh, a 17 year old Palestinian citizen of Israel killed by police in October 2000. Based on interviews and primary sources collected over 14 years, the play offers a uniquely personal lens for understanding inequality as the root of state violence and impunity. In its debut performance at SJC, it aims to create conversations with audiences across the United States to build solidarity across universal struggles for liberation and equality.
This production of the play is touring Universities and Colleges. It is done in partnership with donkeysaddle projects, Adalah, 50 Shades of Black, Students for Justice in Palestine, The US campaign to end the Israeli Occupation, Jewish Voice for Peace and Code Pink.

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.
