Dialogue Lab: America

A Documentary Film

What happens when people stop being polite and start talking about the issues that divide us? We decided to try and answer this very question. And so, earlier this year we brought together twelve Americans for one powerful dialogue experiment on political polarization. One that would decide whether a few people could begin the process of knitting together an entire nation. These twelve individuals — representing far right, far left, and everything in between — dared to cross lines of difference with only one goal: to see if it was possible to cross ideological, political, cultural, and even spiritual divides and find common ground. Some were fearful. Most were highly skeptical. But they all had two things in common: faith in humanity, and a shared belief that by stepping across lines of difference, real change might occur. NOW IT’S YOUR TURN.
