Cultural Transitions

Cultural Transitions is a forty-minute movie that examines the challenges and achievements experienced by international students after arriving in the U.S due to differences between their culture and U.S American culture. Topics discussed in the movie include: language barriers, lack of cultural knowledge, friendship building, time, space, religion, dating/relationships, rules of law and hygiene/appearance.

Through live action scenes and interviews with international students, Cultural Transitions provides insight and guidance to international students experiencing culture shock or even minor difficulties adjusting to life in the U.S. The film is also an excellent intercultural communication tool that can be used with non-international students as well as university faculty and administrators.

Cultural Transitions was produced by Georgia Institute of Technology’s Office of International Education in association with BuzzStudios.
