This is just a list of things that have been of interest to me lately, and thought I’d share:
Crossing Borders–a documentary about 4 Americans and 4 Moroccans traveling together–East meets West–Muslims and non-Muslims–breaking stereotypes and learning about the ‘others’ Looks good.
Another movie that was at the Sundance Film Fest last year and won some awards: Afghan Star. Kind of an American or Canadian Idol but in Afghanistan. We take for granted how something like singing can be dangerous or risky in another country.
A web site about 2 guys who did a ‘Ramadan Roadtrip’ and traveled to 30 different mosques during Ramadan 2010. They share their experiences on each day of their travels and now they are on a speaking tour around university campuses. Great way to break stereotypes and educate others about Islam.
Random British dude speaking in 24 different accents. But he forgot Canadian, ay!
Movie on the top of my Netflix list: South of the Border by Oliver Stone. His look at Hugo (oh how I want to go to Venezuela one day and watch an episode of Ola Presidente!) and the other leaders down in South America.
Ok…back to writing cover letters, preparing for job interviews, and reading The Girl Who Played with Fire (can’t put it down!)
