Film No. 1: Wildlike (2014)
Mackenzie, troubled but daring teenage girl, is sent by her struggling mother to live with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. After being forced to run, Mackenzie finds herself lost and with no one else to turn to, so she shadows a backpacking loner. Together, they cross the wilderness and discover sanctuary in the last frontier. Tickets for this showing will be available at the Info Desk in the HUB the week prior to the show.

10 p.m., R.T.T.
Late-Night Film No. 1: Unforgiven (1992)

Film No. 2: Forgiveness: A Time to Love & A Time to Hate (2011)
There will be no late-night film; this allows for a full Q&A session with Helen Whitney following the conclusion of her documentary. Whitney's documentary, the first 90 minutes of a four-hour series developed for PBS, provides an intimate look into the spontaneous outpouring of forgiveness.
