THUR 1/17: “Hotel Rwanda” - Free Screening & Lecture

7pm to 9:30pm
Hotel Rwanda” w/ Lecture
at Room 100, Bldg 26, 60 Vassar St, Cambridge (MIT Campus)

You're probably not going to get in to see the sneak preview of "Jumper" tonight, but MIT's got another free, 'not-so-sneak' screening tomorrow. Besides the glimpse into the genocidal tragedy of the Tutsi people, Rwandan Marie Gakuba discusses her experience as a Tutsi child and losing her family during the conflict.

It might be me, but everything seems a little more awesome with Don Cheadle. (For example, the Dane Cook baseball commercials were Cheadle/NFL ripoffs and generally sucked.)

The program is sponsored by the Student Anti-Genocide Coalition, and free African refreshments will be served. How often do you get free African snacks?
