Sundance Respect Rally
Festival Celebrity Sightings By Shelby Black STUDENT LIFE WRITER
Celebrities were partying it up in the snow this
weekend and the Utah Statesman was on the
lookout. We may have been a little starstruck. Here are a few notable sightings we had over the weekend.
Day One 1/19/17
Desmin Borges, stars in FX’s comedy drama
“You’re The Worst,” was spotted in a cafe on Main Street.
Later on at “Chase on Main,” “Stranger
Things” actress Cara Buono was hanging around.
While enjoying pizza at Main Street Pizza &
Noodle we also got close to Lena Waith from
“Master of None.” Waith is the first black woman to win a Emmy award for writing.
That night, the Statesman staff passed Robert
J. Strauser aka Limo Bob, owner of Limo Bob

Former Aggie to show documentary on human trafficking By Thomas Sorenson MANAGING EDITOR
Utah State University alumnus Casey Allred
will be presenting his documentary “Stolen Innocence” in the TSC Auditorium on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
The documentary uncovers the illicit sex
trade in India and shares the stories of the women and girls who were forced into that world.
Allred — a 2012 graduate of the Emma Ec-
cles Jones College of Education and Human Services — worked on the film in partnership with Utah-based director Chris Davis begin-
ning in 2014. The film premiered at the Raindance Film Festival in London in September.
During his time at USU, Allred began making
regular trips to India to build schools. Those trips evolved into a nonprofit organization — Effect International — which was eventually rebranded as effect.org.
A question and answer session with the film
crew will follow the showing of the documentary on Wednesday.

“We’re all trying to battle some sickness right

Head coach Jon Eccles also mentioned sickness
following the BYU game, saying several players were unable to practice once during the week.
Eccles also talked about how much the team’s four-game Colorado road trip a week after coming back from the break affected their opportunities to practice and get back in shape.
“We’ve only skated five times, maybe six, and
