Immediately following the tragic events of 9/11, America had the Worlds attention. And it's sympathy, support and backing. Even countries not necessarily friendly with the U.S. were supportive. After eight years under the Bush presidency the World view changed dramatically. Where we once had friends we had enemies. Where we once had support and cooperation we had none. Many Americans were embarrassed and ashamed of their own country. Now a decade later it's time to catch up and take a look at how the World currently views America.
What does the World think of The United States of America? This controversial question led to a global quest for four Americans, whose thought-provoking journey through fourteen countries is documented in the “The Listening Project.” Emotional encounters with dozens of diverse and fascinating characters on all continents reveal the breadth of U.S. impact on ordinary people’s lives around the World. The result is an emotional and inspiring examination of crumbling empires, human fellowship and the meaning of citizenship in a globalized world.
