Professors David Sanders and Steve McCarthy present the film they produced with students of Montclair State University in Amman, Jordan over a two-year period. The film documents the work of Swedish NGO Spiritus Mundi and a team of local artists as they bring music, dance, and theater into the lives of a group of orphan, refugee, and handicapped youth. The project explores how the performing arts can provide young people with a voice to express and empower themselves for both growth and healing. A Q&A session with the students, producers, and Spiritus Mundi Director Henrik Melius will follow the screening. Students with an interest in international production experience are especially encouraged to attend. Register here.
