The Dialogue film screening
"The Dialogue", is a 70–minute 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 other’s backgrounds and learn skills of cross–cultural communication. Their shared travel adventures, 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.
Join as UI journalism professor Judy Polumbaum leads discussion following the screening.
