The Art of Living Foundation, International Association for Human Values, USC Spectrum, USC Office of Religious Life and USC Yoga and Service Club present:
Close Encounters of the Screen Kind: Investigating the Role of Human Values in Hollywood Storytelling
How do we inspire awareness and promote human values through film, television, and new media? Through their respective lenses of expertise, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and key members of the entertainment industry will examine this crucial question. Their presentations will be followed by a moderated panel discussion exploring how changing the stories we see on-screen, changes the stories we live as human beings.
As an ambassador of peace, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar plays a key role in conflict resolution and spreads his vision of non-violence at public forums and gatherings worldwide. Regarded as a neutral figure with a sole agenda of peace, he represents hope to people in conflict. Through his initiatives and addresses, Sri Sri has consistently emphasized the need for reinforcing human values and recognizing humanity as our highest identity. Fostering interfaith harmony and calling for multi-cultural education as the remedy for fanaticism are significant parts of his efforts to achieve sustainable peace on our planet. His work has touched the lives of millions of people around the world, going beyond the barriers of race, nationality and religion with the message of a “one-world family”; that inner and outer peace are possible; and that a stress-free, violence-free society can be created through service and the reawakening of human values.
Admission is free for USC students, faculty and staff. Tickets available in advance at USC Spectrum (Tutor Campus Center #427); USC ID required.
