Beyond Our Differences

The award winning documentary “Beyond Our Differences” asks world leaders and contemporary thinkers, “What are the fundamental issues facing our world today?” The film provides a tapestry of distinct voices and viewpoints from the realms of politics, religion, culture, and the arts and sciences as it weaves a universal vision of hope. Inspired by the lives of Gandhi, Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama, and others, we are called to hope, self empowerment, and expressions of faith and action to create positive change in our individual and collective lives across the planet.
