*/About the film: /*A powerful film that speaks to the forces unleashed 
in a time of national crisis--racism and religion, fear and forgiveness. 
Winner of more than a dozen international awards, the film has been 
celebrated as "a starting point for the new dialogue on race and 
religion that is essential to America's future" (Diana L. Eck, Professor 
of Comparative Religion and Indian Studies at Harvard University and 
director of The Pluralism Project). As we celebrate the 10th anniversary 
of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it is clear that the take-home message in 
the aftermath, still has much relevance today.
/*/*About the  Social Justice Film Series*/: Brought to you by the 
Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Spring 2012 Social Justice Film 
Series theme is 'Conversations at the Crossroads' and offers 
participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and 
subsequent discourse and engage issues of identity in its various forms, 
visible and invisible. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series 
have two viewings and are generally screened up to a half hour and 
followed by an engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To 
be respectful of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational 
program does not exceed ninety minutes.
