This film follows Father. Christopher Hartley, a Spanish priest,
who fights to organize dispossessed Haitians who have toiled under
armed guard on plantations harvesting sugarcane in the Dominican
Republic. They work grueling hours and frequently lack decent
housing, clean water, electricity, education and healthcare.
This film raises key questions about where the products we consume
originate and at what human cost they are produced.
The Devil Came On Horseback

University Center Lounge
Using the exclusive photographs and first-hand testimony of
former US Marine Captain Brian Steidle, this film takes the viewer
on an emotionally charged journey into the heart of Darfur, Sudan,
where an Arab run government is systematically executing a plan to
rid the province of its black African citizens. As a military
observer, Steidle was unprepared for what he would witness and
experience. Frustrated by the inaction of the international
community, Steidle resigned and returned to the US to expose the
images and stories of lives systematically destroyed.
