The Listening Project: What Does The World Think Of America?

May 1, 2008

“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”

                                                           – Ernest Hemingway

The global opinion of the United States is currently…well let’s just say it is not all that positive, thanks to the current administration (2009 can’t come soon enough) and a host of other factors.  However, Americans (and people in general) can learn a lot from joining the international dialogue, so to speak.  The filmmakers who created The Listening Project get that – they traveled to fourteen countries around the world and listened to people from all walks of life as they shared their views and answered the question: “What does the world think of America?”

    I’m sure you do! I actually love to talk to the locals whenever I travel – you can learn so much that way.

    Unfortunately, I have a feeling that the Americans who would benefit most from seeing this movie and hearing the opinions and feelings of people around the world probably will never actually see it. Here’s hoping though!
