Faveri, a junior forward, was a key part of the Seahawks’ successful 2020 campaign that fell just short in the CAA Championship. Now, returning to a UNCW squad welcoming 12 newcomers in 2021, Faveri’s expectations for herself and her team have remained the same.

How clubs are adapting to the return to virtual

Boyce Rucker, Intern September 16, 2021
With North Carolina’s widespread distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, the chances of a return to normalcy at UNCW seemed fairly optimistic. However, such progress came to a halt when UNCW notified students of a COVID-19 cluster in Sandpiper Residence Hall on August 23, 2021. The following day, it was announced that the university would suspend all in-person events and activities that are not related to coursework. On Monday, UNCW extended current guidelines and restrictions until Oct. 15.

REVIEW: ‘The Voyeurs’ questions how far we’ll go for a peek

Grace Hall, Contributing Writer September 14, 2021
The most impressive portion of this movie was the writing: the movie unravels itself completely, then twists itself back up into a knot—it all comes full circle. It questions modern reality, and what’s real. What are the costs of seeing into others’ lives? Are we truly okay with others watching us? How far will we really go to watch—and do we even want to see?

Criminal Justice Reform Bill looks to hold those in law enforcement accountable

Grace Hall, Contributing Writer September 12, 2021
For those victims of police violence, Senate Bill 300 seems to be the light at the end of a tunnel. Finally, action is backing words, and seems to herald a new age in which law enforcement officers will be held to a higher standard, and more importantly, will be held accountable for their actions. While many in the police force aim to protect the American people at any cost, for those that go overboard and begin resorting to violence, it could be their new reckoning.

REVIEW: Oscar Isaac shines amidst the darkness and brutality of ‘The Card Counter’

Boyce Rucker, Intern September 12, 2021
Despite its namesake, and the slick style portrayed in its trailer, the film is only about high-stakes poker on surface level. More than anything, it’s the character study of a broken man and a critique on the inhumanity of military interrogation in the Iraq War.

REVIEW: ‘American Crime Story: Impeachment’ offers a chilling take on the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal

Boyce Rucker, Intern September 11, 2021
While it’s still too early to tell if “American Crime Story: Impeachment” is as great as its predecessors in the “American Crime Story” series, the premiere shows a promise of strong, quality storytelling. The episode stands out for the depth given to each character through the combination of writing and strong acting performances.

Former UNCW professor opens gallery exhibit dedicated to jazz

Kiley Woods, Contributing Writer September 9, 2021
Martinez’s medium is a Rolleiflex camera and a Nikon 35 mm. Many of the photos are what Martinez calls “action photographs” because they were taken in jazz clubs where he was able to stand right next to these musicians. Martinez said he used the contours of his subjects’ music to find the perfect moment where the musician's facial expression and instrument would come together. Some were taken on the street to capture a moment that only lasted a second.
