WATERVILLE — Colby College recently announced the following March events that are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.

* A Sea in Flame: How Negligence Caused the BP Deepwater Horizon Disaster will be discussed at 7 p.m. today in Ostrove Auditorium, Diamond Building.

Carl Safina, the first Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Fellow in Environmental Studies at Colby, will discuss his observations during the 2010 BP oil spill. He visited the area extensively during the disaster, collecting research for his book “A Sea in Flames: The Deepwater Horizon Oil Blowout.”

* Film Screening: “The Fish Child (El Nio Pez)” will begin at 7 tonight in Room 122, Diamond Building.

Lala (Ines Efron, in a performance called evocative of early Sissy Spacek and Chloe Sevigny) is the privileged teenage daughter of a powerful judge, and she’s fallen hard for her family’s maid, La Guayi (singer Mariela Vitale, making her feature-film debut). The two women plot to escape Buenos Aires and live together on the remote shores of Paraguay’s Lake Ypoa. Before they can carry out their plan, Lala’s father is murdered and she runs away from home and heads toward Guayi’s village in Paraguay, hoping that her lover will follow. While in Paraguay, she begins to explore Guayi’s troubled past. For more information, email Professor Dean Allbritton at [email protected]
