A college student sets out across America in the aftermath of 9/11, camera in hand, to document hate violence against Sikh and Muslim American communities. From the still-shocked streets of Ground Zero to the desert towns of the American west, her journey confronts the forces unleashed in a time of national crisis–racism and religion, fear and forgiveness–until she finds the heart of America: halfway around the world. In this film we explore the theme of how faith binds us in our humanity and community.
Please join us for an in-person series in the Eidson-Duckwall Recital Hall, Butler University from 7:00-9:00 PM. Free. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.
Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series will journey outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through the screening of four films and seeks to promote appreciation and foster respect for differences through the lenses of interfaith understanding, diversity, civil discourse, and social justice.
This year, we focus on the question, “what does faith mean”? Each film will invite conversation on different responses to this big question.
