Bollywood Movie Night

By: Princess Jones
The third annual Bollywood Movie Night on Friday will wrap up Trevecca’s International Education Week.
 
The film “Dangal” (which means “Wrestling Competition” in English) will be played at the event at 7 p.m. at the Zelma Waggoner Performance Hall.
“It is the incredible true story of a father who raises four daughters and help lead two of his daughters to international fame, even though his dream was to have a son who would have done that for him. The movie captures the following themes: the traditional respect between fathers and daughters, the way girls were treated in small villages in India, and the importance given to sports in India in the early 80s,” said Roy Philip, associate professor of marketing at Trevecca and sponsor for the event.

It took her 10 hours, but Britney Kent is happy she spent all that time decorating a pumpkin after getting to meet Ed Sheehan.

“I was excited about the idea of winning, but also super nervous because I didn’t think I would win. And I was kind of embarrassed that I spent 10 hours painting a pumpkin that would end up rotting. But it made it worth it once I won,” said Kent.

Kent, a junior at Trevecca last month won a 107.5 radio contest that required contestants to decorate a pumpkin to look like Ed Sheeran, a singer/songwriter.  As the winner, she got free tickets and a meet and greet pass.
