The 21st annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival took place from April 5 to April 8 in Durham, featuring new and old documentaries and sparking conversations about hope, despair, human rights, coming of age and the depths of life.

New hair, new year, new me?

I’ve always had black, pin-straight hair, a family trait on my dad’s side that the Hong clan is extremely proud of. I can’t count how many times my dad has told me the story of my grandma who still had inky black hair without a single trace of silver at 70 and therefore had become the talk of her small Chinese town. My mom, who has natural, frizzy curls – the complete opposite of my pin-straight hair – told me repeatedly how glad she was to find out that I did not inherit her rebellious curls, which had always given her such a headache in the morning when she was young. During our moments of mother-daughter bonding, she would often touch my hair and say, “Look at your hair! You don’t ever have to go to a salon to straighten it!”

Me Too Monologues continue to challenge culture of perfectionism

(02/07/18 5:00am)

This campus is full of stories. Everyone is walking around with one – sad, happy, funny, scary, angry, contemplative. But it’s so hard for us to give that story a voice, for we walk around asking questions like “How are you doing?” and “What’s your major?” instead of “What’s your story?” Even with our close friends and loved ones, how often do we actually feel comfortable answering “Actually, I’m not fine”?

Since Oct. 18, students who have walked into their second home — Perkins — with heavy steps must have been drawn by the black-and-white, visually appealing exhibit “Humans of Paris: Picturing Social Life in the Nineteenth Century” in the Jerry and Bruce Chappell Family Gallery, located between the Von der Heyden Pavilion and the first floor of the library. Curated by Kathryn Desplanque, this exhibit features Rubenstein Library’s rare books and objects that give a glimpse of social life in 19th-century Paris. It will run until Feb. 18, 2018.

A snapshot of Karaoke at the Krafthouse

(10/04/17 4:00am)

Last Friday night, a boisterous party lurked beneath the Brodhead Center. As I descended the stairs toward the Devil's Krafthouse, I could already hear the distinct sounds of chewing, laughing, chattering, perfect harmony by a group of a cappella girls and, equally worthy of applaud, off-key singing by non-professionals who are simply enjoying themselves. This party, which occurs every Friday evening, is officially known as “Karaoke at the Krafthouse.”
