True Crime Local Documentary to Feature Dr. Katherine Ramsland

On Thursday, February 26, at 6:30pm, Dr. Katherine Ramsland, professor of psychology and director of the MACJ program, will be featured in a local documentary on WFMZ-TV. Kids Who Kill will discuss Bryan and David Freeman, brothers who are serving life sentences for the murders of their parents in Salisbury Township, Pa., in 1995. Dr. Ramsland was interviewed for the documentary.

DeSales videographer Tim Cox, who came to us from WFMZ, helped his friend, reporter Jaccii Farris, by shooting a segment of the documentary.

Film, Dance and Chocolate!

Film, Dance and Chocolate! Chef John creates a meal to rival the feast in the popular movie, Chocolat, to celebrate the achievements of our Screendance Festival.

On Thursday, March 12, join John Bell, Deb Walter, and TV/Film Faculty for a scrumptious feast prior to the Dance Ensemble Concert later that evening. Held in the DUC, the evening will begin with open bar at 6 p.m. and include delicious appetizers and a dinner at 6:30 p.m. of roasted meats with accompaniments, chocolate sauces, and decadent desserts. Highlights of the fall Screendance Festival submissions and the winning film  will be presented. Cost is $32 per person. Tickets for the dance concert are available to be purchased separately. Call the DeSales box office at 610-282-3192 for dinner reservations and/or dance tickets.

The Screendance Festival is an annual competition in which TV/Film students are charged with creating a film in 48 hours that highlights our dancers. To ensure the film is produced in the proper timeframe, a surprise prop is revealed 48 hours before the deadline. Last fall, that prop was chocolate.
