Description

The Story of Us with Morgan Freeman Premiere Screening

with Series Exec. Producer James Younger


Event Overview

This event will preview the series episode titled, Us Vs. Them. The episode is described this way:

Can we bridge the divide between “us and them?” At a time when the whole world seems to be polarizing into irreconcilable camps, Freeman sets out on a journey in search of the forces that push us apart, from intolerance of differences to fear of outsiders, and the possibilities of coming together.


This exclusive screening event will feature a screening of the episode titled Us Vs. Them, as well as a moderated Q&A session with series Executive Producer James Younger. Moderating the session will be Jon Huckins, co-founder of San Diego-based The Global Immersion Project, a peacemaking and training organization.


Series Description

From the award-winning team behind The Story of God with Morgan Freeman comes the new six-part series, The Story of Us with Morgan Freeman. At a time when events seem to be driving cultures apart and splintering our own, Morgan Freeman goes on a global journey to understand how human culture has taken so many remarkable forms. At the root of his quest is a drive to uncover the fundamental forces that keep our societies together, while revealing the common humanity that lies inside each one of us.
