EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire American Sign Language Student Organization will present "Black Sand," an ASL film, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dec. 6 in Davies Theatre.

The 90-minute suspense thriller, set in Costa Rica, features deaf and hard of hearing actors, bringing awareness of deafness and ASL to the Eau Claire community.

The event is sponsored by ASLSO and ASL Films. ASL Films is an independent, deaf owned and operated production company.

The screening is open to the public. Tickets cost $11 and will be available at the door. For more information, contact UW-Eau Claire ASLSO members Michelle Brazeau at brazeamn@uwec.edu or Kristin Scheibe at scheibkk@uwec.edu.
