The Listening Project film coming to Cowley
The film “The Listening Project” will be shown at Cowley
College’s Robert Brown Theatre Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. The film is open
to the public and is free to attend.
The Listening Project is a captivating 84-minute cinematic journey around the world in search of the meaning of America.
The film follows four unique Americans through fourteen countries – from a Shanghai hip-hop club to a war-ravaged Kabul neighborhood to a village at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro – in each place asking “what do you think of America?”
In beautifully-photographed locales, they encounter fascinating and diverse characters who reveal not only the impact of the U.S. on their lives, but also their perspectives on crumbling empires, human fellowship, and what it means to be a citizen in a globalized world.
After viewing the film, Dominic Howes (one of the film directors), will have a wrap up question and answer session.
A bus will be available for students from Cowley College’s Southside Education Center that would like to attend.
