The Social Experiment

This Friday, theaters across the country are debuting “The Social Network,” the true story of how the world-changing, Myspace-destroying, time-draining, mega-site Facebook came to be.

Film 'As We Forgive' screened on Tuesday

Large brown eyes never packed so much emotion. Veined with burst blood vessels stained from tears and anger, just two women of the many affected by the 1994 genocide in Rwanda are portrayed in the documentary, "As We Forgive." AIM For Africa and Reitz Union Board Entertainment presented the film, directed by Laura Waters Hinson, Tuesday evening as the first part of An African Film Series in order to raise awareness to issues in foreign nations.
