Tiem Thuc Forgotten: 3 generations of women's oral histories from the vietnam war.
A short film by Amanda Nguyen, depicting a struggle contrasting what is ingrained in our subconscious minds and the forgotten experience of a lived reality.
Amanda, currently attending TESC, went to her homeland of Vietnam and documented three generations of struggle with the war. Knowing Amanda, there's going to be some serious power behind this. Amanda doesn't poke at things with a stick, she hits them with purpose and effect.
I promise, this will be worth seeing.
TESC, Thursday, June 15th Recital Hall in the Com Building - Films start at 7:00 pm - Amanda's starts at 7:25

The low-tides this week are bringing out students, some incredible sealife and a little wonder, which makes me a slightly concerned about what the caimen and nutria might do.
Anyways, while you're out exploring, and being very careful with the little wonderous lives, keep a watch on your back. While John Dodge quite sagely advocates taking care of our beach by not running on it, I think that if you are being chased by caimen or nutria that it might be forgiven.
NORTHPORT, New York (AP) -- Two high school seniors picked quotations from Adolf Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" to appear under their high school yearbook pictures, prompting school officials to apologize.
The quotes were picked by Christopher Koulermos and Philip Compton, both 18. Koulermos' read "Strength lies not in defense, but in attack." Compton chose "The great masses of people ... will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."
"It's our responsibility and we failed miserably," said Northport High School principal Irene McLaughlin. "The fact that the book went out in the form it did was a grave mistake on our part."
Shouldn't the ACLU be rushing to defend these two?
