Film Night- Crossing Borders

Vermeer 180 7:30 pm

Watch the trailer here,

This award winning feature documentary was selected in 2010 for inclusion at twelve international film festivals, including DocMiami International Film Festival, Charlotte Film Festival, Honolulu Film Festival, and Atlanta International Documentary Festival.

Film Synopsis: “Crossing Borders” is a seventy-minute documentary that follows four Moroccan and four American university students as they travel together through Morocco and, in the process of discovering “The Other,” discover themselves. With group travels and frank discussions, the students confront the complex implications of the supposed “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West. The relationships formed through shared experiences contrast sharply with the media-shaped views Americans and Muslims have of each other. Humor, honesty and a willingness to be challenged bring individuals closer to each other and disarm hidden stereotypes.

Activity: Evening activity combining food, film, and discussion. More details to follow.
