• World Malaria Day/Movie Night

    As part of Hamline University's commitment to raise awareness about malaria, we are hosting a special movie night on World Malaria Day!

    This event, which will be held out on Old Main Lawn under nets, will feature several short films and documentaries about malaria.  Our feature presentation will be the showing of two documentary films, "Killer in the Dark" and "When the Night Comes."

    Actress Pauley Perrette (Abby from the hit show NCIS) invites viewers to watch a TV special about the extraordinary efforts to end deaths from malaria. "A Killer in the Dark" will explore grassroots work and scientific progress to help communities fight the deadly disease.


  • Directed by Bobby Bailey, founder of the organization Invisible Children, "When the Night Comes" is an entertaining, emotional and insightful look at the devastating effect of malaria in Africa and how it can be beat.

    Here's a trailer of the film:


  • The screening will take place on April 25th after dark and will be shown outside under mosquito nets!  There will be popcorn and drinks provided, so bring a friend and come ready to learn.  An informal discussion will follow the film.

    If you are interested in renting the documentary for you or your group, contact Daniel Campbell, dcampbell04@hamline.edu.
