David: Using Film in ICD

Intercultural PedagogyDavid, the film co-written, co-produced and co-directed by Joel Fendelman and Patrick Daly, would be a great conversation starter for any discussion of intercultural dialogue, or broader issues of intercultural communication.

The film shows what happens when 11-year-old boys interact without having labels (in this case, “Jew” and “Arab”) to use as their starting point. To quote a line from the trailer, this is “a film about possibilities.”

If you use other films in your work or teaching that relate to intercultural dialogue, please take a moment to send an email with a short note, as CID is currently preparing a list of such films to post as a resource.
