After the film, “The listening Project”, a panel of international students will talk about Globalization and what America’s role should be around the world.
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?”

The event is sponsored by SHADE, BSU, and the AQIP 7 Multicultural Diversity Team.
