Dialogue in Nigeria: Muslims & Christians Creating Their Future (2012)

Religion / 1h5m / Feature / Documentary

Synopsis

200 courageous Muslims and Christians - young women and men - unite successfully in Jos, central Nigeria. Refusing to be enemies, they are together during days and evenings of the 2010 International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Communication. Crossing lines of religion, economics, tribe and gender, they transcend the status quo and discover empathy for each other. Listening-to-learn, they dignify themselves and the 'other' realizing that "an enemy is one whose story we have not hear." Face to face in small circles, they begin with ice-breakers and continue in depth, discovering one another's equal humanity - fear, grief, needs, hopes, and concrete plans for a shared future.

Directed by Emanuel Ande Ivorbga (Nigeria), Libby and Len Traubman
