- International Movie Night screening of Crossing Borders-Thursday, November 20
7:00pm at the International House
Crossing Borders is a 70-minute 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.
International Movie Night is hosted by International House and the Libraries.
- Global CafÃ©-Friday, November 21, 9:30am at International House
Join the Duke community for coffee from around the world and delicious pastries.
