The Dialogue is a 70 minute feature documentary that is designed to initiate powerful intercultural dialogues.  It follows four American and four Chinese college students as they travel together through Southwest China and Hong Kong.  Together the film characters explore each others personal backgrounds and discover cross-cultural communication skills.  Their shared travel adventures, emotions of culture shock, honest confrontations and discoveries about each other become doorways to deepen their understanding of the world, of themselves and of human skills that empower individuals to bridge cultural differences.  A 30-minute discussion will follow the film.

Crossing Borders is a 70-minute feature 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 travel and frank discussion, the students confront the complex implications of the supposed “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West. The relationships formed through shared experience contrast sharply with the media-shaped views American and Muslims have of each other. A 20-minute facilitated discussion will follow the film.  Register at go.udayton.edu/hrtraining
