In one part of the documentary, “Welcome to Chechnya,” which debuted at Sundance earlier this year, a man identified as “Grisha” shares his harrowing experience of being arrested and tortured by Chechen authorities because of his sexual identification.

The limited amount of parking spaces on campus has affected daily commuters to campus, some of whom live significant distances from Hanover.
