The second film of Crossing Borders Films' intercultural trilogy, The Dialogue was created by Crossing Borders Films and co-produced by Michigan State University. The Dialogue is documentary that follows four American and four Chinese university students as they travel together through Hong Kong and Southwest China. Together the students explore each others' backgrounds and learn cross-cultural communication skills. Their shared travel adventures, the emotion of culture shock, honest confrontations and discoveries about each other become doorways to deepen their understanding of the world, of themselves and of styles of communication that are able to bridge cultural differences. The film provides a glimpse into the barriers that make cross-cultural communication difficult and often non-productive. They also highlight skills of open, honest communication that help break down those barriers.
The screening will be followed by a conversation facilitated by director Arnd Wächter.
The UNC Charlotte and local Charlotte community is invited to this event.
