Triton College faculty and staff members will be participating in the interdisciplinary conversations following each screening. They include producer of the docuseries Risé Sanders-Weir (Film), Leke Adeofa (Philosophy), Jose Ocampo Barrera (writer, Tutoring Center), Dr. Gabriel Guzman (Science), Dr. Ruth Hallongren (Psychology), Gail Krahenbuhl (English), Dr. Daniele Manni (Philosophy), Victor McCollum (Sociology), Eugene Muhammad (Philosophy),  Dr. Sheldon Turner (Science), and others.
