Apr 18, 2014

North Central College welcomes Dawn Stark, a global children’s rights activist, as part of the College’s annual global human rights focus. Stark will introduce and discuss the new human rights film “Stuck” on April 21.

The film will be shown at 7 p.m. Monday, April 21, in the Harold and Eva White Activities Center. Stark will introduce the film and lead a discussion after the showing. Admission is free.

Directed by Thaddaeus Scheel, the award-winning documentary “Stuck” tells the stories of four children—Tihum from Ethiopia, Nate from Vietnam, and Erickson and Therline from Haiti—and their individual voyages from orphanages in their native countries to homes with families in the United States.

The film is produced by the Both Ends Burning Campaign, which focuses on aiding children who are either living outside parental care or at risk of becoming separated from their families. Both Ends Burning has premiered “Stuck” in more than 60 communities across the United States.

The free event is hosted by the College’s Office of International Programs and Leadership, Ethics and Values program.
