IEW Calendar of Events 2016 Schedule


*Monday October 31, 2016

International Film, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Orndorff Theater, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Based on the book by the same name, The Serpent and the Rainbow recounts ethnobotanist Wade Davis's encounter with Haitian Vodoun as he researched the possible causes for zombification. While most of his claims have been debunked by serious scientists, the film makes for a frightful adventure befitting Halloween. Come learn about this mysterious religion and have great fun in the process.

Sponsored by the Departments of International Studies/Programs and Modern Languages along with the Career and Community Engagement Center.
