Presented by the Center for International Programs and ArtStreet, with support from the Division of Student Development. Hosted by Sangita Gosalia (Center for International Programs) with student panelists Chinyi Chen, Joseph (Jed) Gerlach and Safae Sali. Crossing Borders is a 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.
