Noon Conversation: 'Vené

Film maker Paul-Michael Carr will show his film “Vené: VISION 2011,” created to honor this year’s January Term VISION trip to Venezuela, on Thursday, March 31.

Part of the UST Libraries’ Noon Conversation series, the event will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in the O’Shaughnessy Room of O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center. A question-and-answer session with Carr and members of the Venezuelan VISION team will follow the 35-minute film.

Carr describes himself this way: “Born in Montana and raised on the western edge of North Dakota, he attended Saint John's University desperately hoping it would not be held against him. Shortly after completing his graduate work at the University College in Dublin, Ireland, he moved back to St. Paul to join his brother, Daniel, during his brother's senior year. Coming to terms both with the dominance of a Tomcat over a Rat and the dire state of the economy, he accepted the auspicious position of barista at Coffee Bené, where he works to diligently meet the caffeine needs of St. Thomas faculty, staff and students alike. When he is not doing this, he makes films.”  

This event is free and open to the public; refreshments will be provided. For more information call Julie Kimlinger, (651) 962-5014.
