WHO GOES THERE? — A chimera looks down from its perch high above a side entrance to Norman Mayer Hall on the Tulane University uptown campus. Similar to gargoyles, which were designed to divert rain water from cascading down the side of a building, chimeras are ornamental creatures crafted to scare off evil spirits and offer protection to those entering or exiting the building.

Newcomb Film Series
Tuesday, Oct. 13, 6 p.m.
The Newcomb College institute presents India’s Daughter, the powerful story of the 2012, brutal gang rape on a Delhi bus of a 23-year-old medical student, who later died from her injuries. In 2012, the incident made international headlines and ignited protests by women in India and around the world. India’s government banned the film while the BBC moved its planned broadcast up by days and ignited a new controversy. BAFTA winning filmmaker Leslee Udwin, herself a victim of rape, went to India inspired by the protests against sexual assault. An impassioned plea for change, this film pays tribute to a remarkable and inspiring young woman and explores the compelling human stories behind the incident and the political ramifications throughout India. The screening is free and open to the public.
