7:00 pm - 8:00 pm    Perspectives Club Documentary- The Hunting Ground

Student Activities / Center for Women and Gender

The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. The Hunting Ground is a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate. Since the film’s premiere at Sundance, it had been screened at the White House and hundreds of college campuses across the country. The documentary has inspired new laws in New York and California and changes in campus policies.

7:30 pm - 8:30 pm    Museum and Music

Arts & Entertainment / Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

April Concert: Zappa and Zappa: Counterculture California in the 1960s By the 1960s California was the place to go if you felt yourself marginalized by postwar American culture and society. April’s concert features the music one of Southern California’s most iconoclastic musicians, Frank Zappa. His music is wildly creative, often offensive, and boldly impatient with tradition. It will be paired with the music of Francesco Zappa, an 18th century Italian composer active in Amsterdam. While not an innovator, Francesco’s music is tuneful and attractive. It belongs in this concert as an exemplar of another avant-garde movement based in San Francisco at the time, the historical performance of “early music.” These two evocations of Californian counterculture come together in Frank Zappa’s own electronic recording of Francesco’s music. This concert will be performed by students from USU’s Music Department. Time: 7:30pm, refreshments to follow

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm    Movie Premier : Between Earth and Sky

Special Event / Office of Global Engagement

Alaska has been the source of myth and legend in the imagination of Americans for centuries, and what was once the last frontier of American expansion, has become the first frontier in climate change. Between Earth and Sky examines climate change through the lens of impacts to native Alaskans, receding glaciers, and arctic soil. The island of Shishmaref has been home to the Inupiaq people for thousands of years. As sea ice retreats and coastal storms increase the people of Shishmaref are faced with a disappearing island and a 200 million dollar price tag to move their people with an untold cost on their culture and history. Permafrost(permanently frozen ground) in Alaska sequesters 40% of the earth’s carbon, Alaska has experienced the largest regional warming of any state in the U.S. increasing 3.4 degrees F since 1949. This warming has created a feedback loop of carbon to the atmosphere and the thawing of permafrost.
