This toolkit is created around our timely, character driven and emotional feature film Crossing Borders, which follows four Moroccan and four American students as they travel together through Morocco to explore issues of perception and stereotyping through dialogue.
Recent terror attacks have undermined our sense of safety. Media representations of the issues and political discourse further polarise our societies and leave us insecure about constructive ways to respond. At CBE we feel that what we as ordinary citizens can do is to develop the skills and courage to address painful issues and take the risk to engage openly. The story of Crossing Borders is envisioned as a blueprint for processing conflicts, developing empathy and exploring the Other’s reality. This page provides you with tools to lead small group conversations that support growing a Culture of Dialogue at your home, school, work, church or community.
