The last event for the month of March for Louisiana Tech’s Shaping the 21st Century: Stability and Sustainability in a Global Context will take place Wednesday, March 31.
“Milking the Rhino,” a film charting the collision of ancient ways with Western expectations, will be shown at 6:30 p.m. in Wyly Tower Auditorium.
“It shows the tribal regions of Africa trying to reintroduce rhinos back into the environment,” said Bill Willoughby, associate dean of the College of Liberal Arts. “There’s this African-Western conflict where some want to ‘milk’ the rhino (for ecotourism).”
The film, which is directed by David E. Simpson, is 80 minutes long and was released in 2008.
The next event in the series will be a premiere film screening of “The Burning Season” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 7 in Wyly Tower Auditorium.
The Shaping the 21st Century series is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Applied and Natural Sciences, the College of Education, the College of Engineering and Science, the College of Business, the Office of Academic Affairs, the Student Government Association, the International Student Office, Tech Gospel Choir: Souls on Fire and the International Student Association.
All events in this series are free and open to the public.
