The McNerney-Hanson Chair in Ethics will host a screening of the award-winning documentary, “Welcome to Unity,” on Thursday, November 13, at 6:15 p.m., in Buckley Center Auditorium. The screening is free and open to all.
“Welcome to Unity” is a story filmed by a group of exchange students and local American teens. The exchange students sink their teeth into rural Oregon, while becoming the stars of their high school football team, and simultaneously learn to live the ‘American Way’. It is described as “a coming of age documentary that embarks on a journey of friendship, learning, understanding, and tolerance. As a group of people become a global family, they beat the odds in transcending cultural boundaries, and moving past stereotypes.” The film won best documentary in two different categories at the Chicago Film Festival.
