Foreign Film Thursday: "Character" (Holland). After being arrested for the murder of Dreverhaven, the important and feared town bailiff, the young lawyer Katadreuffe remembers the events leading up to the crime through flashbacks which reveal the victim to be his father. Set in 1920's Rotterdam, the story follows Dreverhaven as he exercised his tyrannical power by forcing people from their homes while Katadreuffe grew up by taking refuge in books, cultivating a desire to make something of himself. Post film discussion moderated by Assistant Professor Alex Idavoy. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Student Life and Activities and the International Education Center.

Defying Genocide: Rescue in Rwanda. When the genocide erupted in April 1994, the United Nations pulled out most of its troops, and then United States and European governments evacuated thousands of expatriates. Carl Wilkens, a young humanitarian aid worker, was the only American to stay in the country. Venturing out each day into the streets crackling with mortars and gunfire, he brought food, water and medicine to groups of orphans trapped around the city. In addition to Carl Wilken's presentation there will be an important Silent Basket Auction fund-raiser to support programs the Holocaust, Genocide, & Humans Rights Education offers to schools and the community. HGHREC Members and BBC Students free. $10.00 admission non-members/students.
