DIALOGUE IN NIGERIA: Muslims & Christians Creating Their Future is our new 2012 documentary film that illustrates in real life that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard."
Refusing to be enemies, they are together during days and evenings of the 2010 International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Communication.
They are tense yet excited to finally cross lines of religion, economics, tribe, and gender to transcend the status quo and discover empathy for each other's personal life experiences.
Together they realize that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard," while listening-to-learn and thus dignifying themselves and the "others."
Face to face and in small circles, they begin with ice-breakers and continue in depth to discover one another's equal humanity - fear, grief, needs, hopes, and concrete plans for a shared future.
These determined young Nigerians illustrate how others worldwide can successfully connect and communicate to create authentic community.
