It’s no secret that sexual assault on college campuses has received an uptick in attention from the national media over the past year. Middlebury has followed with a series of awesome events to bring light to the problem and its pervasiveness on our own campus. On the heels of Middlebury’s own It Happens Here event, tonight the Chellis House will be hosting a screening of the film It Happened Here. Maddie Orcutt ’16 writes in to middbeat:
Through intimate portraits of five student survivors, IT HAPPENED HERE explores the alarming pervasiveness of sexual assault on college campuses, the institutional cover-ups and the failure to protect students, and follows students’ fight for accountability and change on campus in federal court.

Word on the street is… there’s a very cool street art exhibit at the college museum. If you haven’t taken the time to venture down to the CFA to check out works by Banksy, JR, Shepard Fairy, and more, the trek down is definitely worth your time. Unconvinced? Read what middbeat’s Anna Cerf ’18had to say about the show.
If you’ve already been and can’t get enough street art, you’re in luck. Today, Henry Chalfant, co-producer of the award-winning film Style Wars (1983) will be here at Midd to show a screening of the movie and speak about it Q&A style. Watch the trailer here. More on the movie and producer below!
Style Wars, awarded the Grand Prize for Documentaries at the 1983 Sundance Film Festival, is an indispensable introduction to the vital and explosive New York City street culture of the late 1970s and early ’80s. The film captures the look and feel of the city’s subway system as a graffiti writers’ playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. As authorities opposed the writers by every means possible, the artists bombed the subways with their “tags” and introduced new sounds and new moves as their street corner breakdance battles evolved into performance art.
A photographer and film producer, Chalfant is a foremost cultural historian of New York subway art and urban youth culture. His photographs record hundreds of ephemeral and original art works that have long since vanished. His epochal text Street Art (1987), co-authored with Martha Cooper and recently republished in a 25th-anniversary edition, has been cited as the single most influential sourcebook and stimulus to global street art.
Date: Today, March 5th Time: 4:30 screening followed by a Q&A Place: Dana Auditorium in Sunderland Cost: $0
