David Ko - Building Bridges in the Age of Uncivility

Hear Digital Media expert David Ko describe his concern about recent destabilizing behaviors around the world and how they threaten efforts to bridge Asia and the West through “open hearts, open minds.”  Much of what Asians perceive of Western culture comes from Hollywood, without similar exposure in the other direction.
China’s recent economic slowdown has affected many companies, but has only increased interest in use of digital media.  So far, so good, says Davis, but hard to predict the impact of a trade war between the US and China could have.
