Imagine a pixie with Cara Delevigne brows, a stunning vocal range, and a knack for techno beats. She exists, and her name is MØ. I was first introduced to the Scandinavian singer on a sunny afternoon in the passenger seat of a friend’s car. He had the aux cord, and I couldn’t help but ask, […]

February 8, 2018, by Nathan Pugh, Contributing Writer. Leave a Comment

The first time the two central characters of the indie film “Columbus” meet, it’s an awkward chance encounter. Casey (Haley Lu Richardson) is a young white woman who spends her days working in her town’s library. She’s stuck in a world that she cares too deeply for.

Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film “Man with a Movie Camera,” was screened at the film series this past Saturday. Though heralded as one of the pioneering works of the documentary genre, the film still remains unlike any movie today.

“For Christmas, a gentile would get a bike as a reminder that their parents love them.
