Is darkness becoming extinct?

When filmmaker Ian Cheney moves from rural Maine to New York City and discovers streets awash in light and skies devoid of stars, he embarks on a journey to America’s brightest and darkest corners, asking astronomers, cancer researchers and ecologists what is lost in the glare of city lights.

Blending a humorous, searching narrative with poetic footage of the night sky, The City Dark provides a fascinating introduction to the science of the dark and an exploration of our relationship to the stars.

A panel discussion will follow.

Gold Fever Film Screening this Thursday

Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 E., Malouf 201
Thursday, October 17 @ 8:00 p.m.

Tragic and inspiring, Gold Fever witnesses the arrival of Goldcorp Inc to a remote Guatemalan village. 500 years after the conquistadors invaded, and still reeling from decades of US-backed repression, the Mayans of San Miguel Ixtahuacán find themselves on the front lines of an increasingly globalized world. Together with members of their divided community, and in the face of grave consequences, Diodora, Crisanta and Gregoria resist the threat to their ancestral lands.

Meanwhile, in the North, fearful investors flock to gold and some call for the return of the gold standard. Commentators Noam Chomsky, Magalí Rey Rosa, and “economic hitman” John Perkins draw connections between the stratospheric power of Wall Street and San Miguel’s struggle, asking “what is the value of the one place we have to live?”

Winner of the Rigoberta Menchú Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal First Peoples Festival, Gold Fever is a hard-hitting documentary about the destructive and exploitative impacts of transnational mining.
