Crossing BordersThe Office of Multicultural and International Student Programs is presenting "Crossing Borders" a feature film documentary directed by Arnd Wächter.

This documentary reflects specifically on issues about images of Muslims and will heighten students' awareness of hidden preconceptions. The initiative has the potential to become a vibrant example and inspiration for students to widen their horizons and learn about other cultures.

"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 all bring individuals closer to each other and the relationships that develop disarm hidden stereotypes.&

Therefore, our goal to showing this film is to transform students to see the world from a different perspective and to realize their opportunities and responsibilities for global concerns. This could be a perfect opportunity for students and faculty in your class/department to attend this event. It is a free event with refreshments being served.
