“Love, friendship, respect, do not unite people as much as a common hatred of something.”
— Anton Chekhov
Interweaving the stories of an ethnically diverse group of children ages 9-11, Walk This Way shows how acts of discrimination and intolerance can be transformed into positive life lessons. Through an animated ‘Universe of Difference’ and poetic voice-over by Susan Sarandon, Walk This Way introduces viewers to children who are blazing their own trails by understanding and appreciating what it means to be different.
An impressionistic tapestry of evocative visuals compliments the intimate stories of nine boys and girls as they explore themes such as ethnicity, gender, language, disabilities and appearance. Geared to encourage children to communicate their feelings, ask questions and seek additional information, Walk This Way stimulates self-reflection and sparks discussion among both young people and adults. Taking an honest and entertaining approach, Walk This Way promotes greater tolerance in a complex, ever-changing world.
