Finding Bibi — A Documentary about Identity and Understanding

I caught a glimpse of this video on Facebook and it looked amazing to me.  I thought I would share it with you all.  It has gotten me thinking about how, living in an increasingly globalized world, we can build understanding and trust between people of different cultures.  President Obama’s first major television interview was with Al Arabiya in the hopes to do just that.

Like President Obama, the filmmaker, Bita has lived as a cultural hybrid, and experienced different views on women and their role in society.  How can we all learn and grow so that men and women around the world can become educated partners instead of adversaries?

One thought on “Finding Bibi — A Documentary about Identity and Understanding

  1. First of all, thanks for the link to my weblog. Next, let me say: WOW!! What a clip. This girl has courage. That does not mean fearless. It means action in the face of fear. She’s got it. Courage. And what’s more, I learned some ugly truth. And though it may have been more subtle, I learned some beautiful truth as well.
