American Textures is an 80-minute feature documentary that follows six creative individuals of Black, White and Latino origin on a journey through diverse communities in the southern United States. The journey pushes them to risk sharing their own stories, struggles and dreams. The honest confrontations, powerful discoveries, and growing empathy between them create vibrant doorways through which these true heroes forge deeper understandings of themselves, each other and the world they live in. A short facilitated reflection and discussion will be held following the film. For a staff audience but open to faculty.
