‘Selma’: a must-see film of great importance

Full, immediate disclosure: I cannot promise that this review will be utterly free of any white cisgender male privilege that I carry around with me because of my race and gender identity. As anyone will tell you, there is no way to completely leave these behind without ending in a position where I’d simply be […]

I Wish’ I liked ‘Into the Woods’

Over the break, I went to see a film that had been a point of frustration for me since the first trailer was released.

She has lived in Jerusalem since 1967 while studying at Hebrew University. Through her selection of poems that she handed out to the audience, “A Future More Vivid” serves to reflect a […]

Duke Ellington honored in Jazz Ensemble concert

Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington was a jazz legend. So it’s only natural that Brandeis Jazz Ensemble’s latest concert “Music of Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Edvard Grieg,” was all about Ellington. Duke Ellington was born in 1899, led his orchestra starting in 1923, and kept playing and composing until he died in 1974, spanning a record-long […]

COMIC: Cold Shoulder

Rather Be Giraffes hosts yet another successful semester show
