BC filmmaker to screen new work

Prof. John Michalczyk (Fine Arts) will present the world premiere of his new film, "Prelude to Kosovo: War and Peace in Bosnia and Croatia," on Sunday, Sept. 26, at the Museum of Fine Arts.

Shot on location in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia, "Prelude to Kosovo" is a collaborative effort of BC and the Boston Theological Institute to examine the recent conflict in that troubled region.

The event will start at 7:30 p.m. with a concert by Vuk Kulenovic and Alexis Gavras of music they composed for the film. "Prelude to Kosovo" will begin at approximately 8 p.m., followed by a panel discussion with Michalczyk, who produced and directed the film, part-time faculty member Raymond Helmick, SJ (Theology), and BTI Executive Director Rodney Petersen, who both served as executive producers.

Admission to the event is $7.

Direct deposit to be required this fall

All Boston College employees, including work-study and part-time student employees, will be paid by direct deposit starting this fall.

The direct deposit system electronically places the employee's earnings in a checking or savings account at the bank of the employee's choice. The deposit is placed in the account before the start of the business day on the worker's normal payday.

The direct deposit initiative is an outgrowth of Project Delta efforts to eliminate all paper paychecks as the University implements its new "PeopleSoft" Human Resources/Payroll System on Oct. 1. Employees will still receive pay stubs until they can be converted to on-line viewing.

Representatives from BankBoston will be in the McElroy Commons foyer from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 7 through Friday, Sept. 10, joining staff members from the Human Resource Services Center in assisting employees not currently enrolled in the direct deposit plan to convert to the new payroll method.

Direct deposit enrollment forms can also be obtained on-line at /hrsc. For more information, contact Human Resources at ext.2-3330.
