As many of you may have read in a recent post, Journey into America and the One Film 9/11 interfaith initiative were both warmly received at the U.S. Embassy in London. People of all walks of life approached me after the screening/discussion and shared with me their thoughts as well as how inspired they were with its messages. Some of the warmest remarks came from Ambassador Stephenson, who said that Journey into America proves that ‘where there is greater understanding there is not only tolerance but – even more important – there is hope’.
I’m back in Dublin now and catching up with the contacts that I made in London. Several media outlets are interested in working with me to both screen Journey into America as well as promote One Film 9/11. I’m also writing an article for The Nation (Pakistan) on the U.S. Embassy event; I’ll be publishing it probably in the next week. My time here in Dublin is short-lived as we have to jump back on a quick flight to London on December 12th for a Journey into America screening at SOAS. I’ll be sitting on the panel and taking questions from members of the audience. I hope to see you there if you’re in London.
Thanks for tuning in. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments about either Journey into America or the One Film 9/11 interfaith initiative.
