Mina Chow has launched an international social media campaign for FACE OF A NATION on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to provide a public platform for intelligent discussion about the role of architecture and design in cultural diplomacy and conflict resolution. As a result of the film's significance, Skywalker Sound (George Lucas/THX) has agreed to join our team, and they are exploring ways they will contribute. A venture capitalist has invested further resources with another generous contribution. Mina also has presented her works-in-progress at several symposiums at USC Annenberg’s Center for Public Diplomacy between 2014-2016. (She is speaking again at a 1-day conference on Friday May 6, 2016.) FACE OF A NATION has progressed to fine-cut with 34 animations-in-progress.
