Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

This event will be co-sponsored by OIE, Global Jackets, Project Pengyou and Culture Union. It will be a night celebrating traditional and modern Chinese culture full of food, performances, and games. Following Coffee Hour, there will be a screening of the movie 'The Dialogue.'

The Dialogue Movie Screening: 7-8:30 pm, Student Center Theater

A documentary that follows four U.S. Americans and four Chinese university students as they travel through Hong Kong and Southeast China together. Together the students explore each others' backgrounds and learn cross-cultural communication skills. Their shared travel adventures, the emotion of culture shock, honest confrontations and discoveries about each other become doorways to deepen their understanding of the world, of themselves, and of styles of communication that are able to bridge cultural differences.
