“Benediction” opens. 5 and 8 pm in Main Auditorium
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Terence Davies, Benediction explores the turbulent life of WWI poet, Siegfried Sassoon. Sassoon was a complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the war and was decorated for his bravery but who became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service. His experiences on the Western Front inspired his poetry as he became one of the leading war poets of the era. Adored by members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s literary and stage world, he embarked on affairs with several men as he attempted to come to terms with his homosexuality. At the same time, broken by the horror of war, he made his life’s journey a quest for salvation, trying to find it within the conformity of marriage and religion.

Prince Amleth is on the verge of becoming a man when his father is brutally murdered by his uncle, who kidnaps the boy’s mother.

By night I’m still all of these things but I have a guitar in my hands and a microphone in front of me that I’ve been slowly learning how to use over the past decade. I love pop punk. I love country. Whether it’s a nasally, stream-of-conscious screechfest of a song or a carefully crafted ballad that subtly describes how Dinosaur documentaries shaped my childhood, I’ll find a way to get it in people’s ears and make them excited and share that excitement with them!
