The Listening Project is a full-length documentary that explores the impact of the USs global influence politically, economically, and socially. A crew of Americans traveled the globe, from Canada to South Africa to Pakistan, to find out what the international opinion of the US really is. This website provides a trailer, a synopsis, photos, and video clips from each of the fourteen countries visited. The people interviewed each offer their unique opinion of the existing globalization; there are teachers, musicians, young professionals, and a group of French middle-schoolers that classified Americans as rich, powerful and fat.
