Film: Unveiled (Fremde Haut) (Germany, 2005) presented by the LGBTCC on February 15

On Monday February 15, the LGBTCC will screen the film ‘Unveiled’ (Germany, 2005) at 7:00 pm in the Memorial Union LGBT Campus Center (2nd Floor) as part of the LGBT 2010 Film Festival.

The educated Fariba Tabrizi flies from Teheran to Germany expecting to have asylum, since she is persecuted in Iran due to her lesbian relationship with her beloved Shirin. However, her application is denied by the authorities and Fariba has to return to her home country. When her recent acquaintance Siamak, who is grieving the death of his brother, commits suicide, Fariba assumes his identity and status of political refugee and is sent to a refugee camp in a German village. Fariba finds an illegal work in a cabbage factory and she has many difficulties for not having bath with the other male workers. She becomes close to her colleague Anne and they fall in love for each other. However, prejudice and her illegal condition jeopardize her exile in German. (courtesy of IMDB)

Meeting: Israeli-Palestinian Forum “Kavanah” Opening Meeting on February 10

Wednesday 11, 2010

7:00 – 8:00 pm

Memorial Union Paul Bunyan Room

The event will be a way for students to meet other people who are interested in the Israel-Palestine conflict, to learn about Kavanah and what we are planning for the semester, and to have a stimulating and respectful discussion on the conflict with a diversity of opinion on it and people from all different backgrounds.

We will talk about why a group like Kavanah is important to the conflict and the role and connection we have as American citizens to a conflict that at times seems so far away and distant, yet is right at our fingertips. Pizza or other food will be provided!
