The first film in the Stanford Summer Human Rights Series, “Stink!”, was screened on campus on July 19. The series is part of the Camera as a Witness (CAW) Program, which was founded by Stanford teacher and lecturer Jasmina Bojic eight years ago. The three films that will be shown in the Summer Series are selected from the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) archives, according to Bojic.
On Feb. 23, Stanford filed a federal lawsuit against multiple Hewlett-Packard companies, seeking millions in damages for HP’s purported chemical contamination of “substantial portions” of 1601 S. California Avenue — land that Stanford owns — during a grading project sometime between 1970 and 1999. The named corporations in the original lawsuit are Hewlett-Packard Company and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Agilent Technologies.
