In this coming-of-age story, the teens recover from their injuries, process their grief and start one of the largest student-led movements in decades, March for Our Lives.  The film’s focus is their cross-country speaking tour that summer, aimed to prevent further school shootings and to mobilize the youth vote.  Director Snyder has been invited to join the post-screening discussion.  She won a Peabody Award for her 2016 documentary, “ Newtown,” about the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. 7 pm

Bach Cantata Series 12:30-1:30. FREE. No ticket required. Join in-person at The Clarice or watch the livestream from the comfort of your home. J.S. Bach, known as the great master, wrote more than 200 cantatas, and UMD Choral Activities aims to sing them all in this series of short performances led by conductors in the graduate program. Conducted by Matthew Goinz, this performance will feature Du Hirte Israel, höre (You Shepherd of Israel, hear), BWV 104. This cantata premiered in 1724, Bach’s second year as cantor at St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, a position he would hold until his death in 1750. Written for Misericordias Domini—the second Sunday after Easter in the Lutheran church calendar—Bach’s gentle musical pastorale creates a soothing atmosphere of refreshment and renewal. The cantata will be followed with informal performances by voice and opera students.
