Big Names in Media Admit “Storytelling” Agenda at Inagural America Abroad Media Awards

It was a star studded evening at the Mellon Auditorium Monday night as Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow, Bollywood Superstar Aamir Khan and The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC) founded by Peter Ackerman joined Washington Post film AAM_0038critic Ann Hornaday at the inaugural America Abroad Media Awards.

The evening included a reception, dinner and informal on-stage conversation among the three (above) honorees, moderated by Hornaday, to discuss how the power of film (and the media as a whole) works to empower and educate about critical social and public policy issues.

Said Khan from the stage: “All my capabilities lie in the field of media and storytelling… So we try to combine our expertise and capabilities in storytelling and television and pick social issues that we feel can make a difference.”
