As comics, film, and popular arts increase in global appeal, so do the State Department's initiatives designed to build mutual understanding around the world. Learn about an anti-bullying film project between U.S. and Mexican students, comic book-based learning in countries around the world, and how diplomatic engagement using popular arts highlights shared values. U.S. diplomats and citizen cultural ambassadors will showcase innovative programs that promote solutions to challenging global issues and advance U.S. foreign policy. Panelists include Preeti Shah (foreign service officer, U.S Consulate Tijuana, U.S Department of State), David Andrade (filmmaker/graphic artist, Theory Studios, ECA Alumni), Alex (Alexandra) Wesser (teacher/program implementer, Media Arts Center), Rachel Gandin Mark (program director, American Film Showcase), and director/producer/writer Jorge Gutierrez (Book of Life, El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, Son of Jaguar).
