Janson Media announced today that the award-winning documentary Crossing Borders (1 x 72′) is available for live viewing on the on-demand service, Hulu. The enlightening film joins other quality Janson Media content available on the online video service including The Wereth Eleven and the company’s Hollywood Collection.
Crossing Borders is a feature documentary that brings together four Moroccan and four American university students on a week-long journey through Morocco, a journey of dialogue and of understanding. 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.
Crossing Borders was produced by the non-profit organization for intercultural education, Crossing Borders Education. Founded by Arnd Wachter, CB-Education has served more than 3,200 American college students on its exchange programs since 2003. CB-Education aims to give a personal face to the “other side” through the experiences of American students studying abroad and their interactions with students in the moderate Muslim state of Morocco.
