There is always a need for blood and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

Film Screening and Q&A with Judy Irola
Join the Stephens Department of Digital Film and Media for a screening and discussion with award-winning cinematographer and documentary filmmaker Judy Irola. The documentary “Cine Manifest” will be shown at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 28 in the screening room (HCC27), in the basement of Helis between the television studios and radio station. An informal question-and-answer session will follow.
In the film, Irola revisits her 1970s San Francisco Marxist film collective, Cine Manifest. Irola (the only female member of the collective) and her comrades puzzle out in hindsight whether their social experiment, which produced two acclaimed independent feature films, was ultimately an artistic success or an idealistic disaster.
Students with an interest in directing, cinematography and documentary are highly encouraged to attend. Don't miss your opportunity to meet this distinguished film artist!
In addition to the Stephens screening, Irola’s documentary “Niger ’66" will be screened on the MU campus at 2 p.m. on Friday. Stephens students are encouraged to attend. Please contact Chad Freidrichs [email protected] for further details.

This is Jane Austen at her most delightful! If you like “Pride and Prejudice,” you will truly love this gem. Two sisters are totally captivated by two very different gentlemen. Their entanglements make for a joyous adventure into romance. Of course, where there is love, there is heartbreak, but these charming ladies learn to manage the men in their lives. Even Shakespeare couldn’t have written a better all’s well that ends well. It’s a romantic jaunt that is perfect for a February evening at the theatre.
