AMERICAN BEAR: AN ADVENTURE IN THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS, co-presented by and featuring a post-film Q&A with filmmakers Sarah Sellman and Greg Grano
American Bear: An Adventure In The Kindness Of Strangers is an inspiring exploration of the United States through trust, fear, and hospitality across America and between Americans. Sarah and Greg set out to critically explore American culture, compassion, and fear by relying on the kindness of strangers for a home each night. Traveling through 30 states in 60 days, they spend every day in a new town, learning why people may or may not be willing to open their homes. Sarah and Greg spend time getting to know their hosts, each uniquely, culturally American while the film raises questions about how we define American identities. Sarah and Greg's own social location (white, young, middle class, and heterosexual) guides the way they interact with strangers, complicating the hospitality they receive.
