Crossing Borders: "The Dialogue" Film ScreeningThe Dialogue is a 68 minute documentary that follows four American and four Chinese university students as they travel together through Hong Kong and Southwest China. Together the students explore each others' backgrounds and learn cross-cultural communication skills.
