Storytelling school

Kristin Hahn and Tim Fort will discuss storytelling through film

Kristin Hahn, executive producer of Apple TV’s “The Morning Show” and 2022 Poling Professor of Business and Government at the Kelley School of Business, and Tim Fort, Everleigh Professor of Business Ethics and Kroc Institute Affiliate Fellow for International Peace from the University of Notre Dame, will hold a discussion on the power of storytelling through film.

The discussion will take place at the Shreve Auditorium at the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on April 19.

Together, they will propose that the stories we tell can affect our perspective on each other and alter our view of the world, according to the IU Theater and Dance event page.

Fort and Hahn will present several film clips, some of which are inspired by cinematic accounts of historical events. Other clips featured will focus on the power of the human imagination.

These clips will address the innate desire to turn conflict into common ground, exploring the transformative power that storytelling has through film, according to Hutton Honors College.

The event is free, but the number of places is limited. Interested attendees can request a spot by filling out the event’s RSVP form. Reservations will close at 5 p.m. on April 19.
