The Halsey Institute’s new photographic exhibitions, opening Jan. 22, will be supplemented by screenings of two documentary films in February in the Simons Center Recital Hall. Anne Aghion’s film My Neighbor My Killer follows the 10-year struggle of Rwandan Hutus and Tutsis as they work toward forgiveness and peace. It will be shown on Fri. Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. The Rescue of Joseph Kony’s Child Soldiers takes a closer look at children forced into lives of brutality and slavery. It will screen Fri. Feb. 19 at 7 p.m.

On Sat. Jan. 23, a panel dealing with the challenges of presenting documentaries with difficult and troubling images will be held at the Simons Center Recital Hall. Featured photgraphers Jonathan Torgovnik and Heather McClintock will be part of the panel as well as several other experts in the documentary field. For more information, see halsey.cofc.edu.
