Global Experience: Sister Cities Film Festival

The IRC's Global Experience series asks, "What's your global story? Do you get the chance to share it?" Join the IRC as we attend the Sister Cities Association's film showing of Road to the Sky (China, 2015). Following the film, there will be a post-film discussion, and then IRC attendees are invited to relocate to a nearby restaurant for lunch.

About the Sister Cities Association
For over 50 years, Sister City International (SCI) has served as a catalyst for international understanding and community development, honoring a legacy of citizen diplomacy begun by President Eisenhower in 1956. Today Sister City Associations across the nation continue to be a trendsetter in the citizen exchanges arena. Kansas City has been a proud member of SCI since 1967 and presently has 13 cities around the world that they call their “Sister City.” For information about other films showing as part of the Sister Cities Film festival, be sure to check out their Facebook page
