I pledge to listen to you. Will you listen to me?

I pledge not to demonize anyone who holds certain opinions, views or beliefs, but instead will try to understand their reasons and their arguments and express my own views in return. That’s it.

I was so moved by the experiences shared in this film. I was taught at a young age to be kind and show compassion to others. I have never seen color, race or religion in a way that would change how I feel about or treat others. This film gave me a deeper understanding of what is happening in our world and inspired me to continue to accept and love others. Thank you for this wonderful film and the important message!

    Song: Look Me In The Eye

    Look Me in the Eye is a new song from the singer-songwriter team of Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) and Jason Karaban (Ani DeFranco, Sara Watkins) and inspired by the upcoming release of the documentary FREE TRIP TO EGYPT.

    Watch the Music video here:

    Look Me in the Eye was recently recorded by an impressive collection of singers, recording artists and studio musicians at the famed Boulevard Recording studio in Los Angeles, with lyrics that touch on our film’s themes of civility, deep listening and authentic, compassionate conversations.

    Produced by Justin Stanley (Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Jet), Look Me in the Eye features lead vocals from Phillips and Karaban and a band that includes fellow singer-songwriter Val McCallum on guitar, bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing), drummer Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello), and keyboardists Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers).

    “I was truly inspired by the film and Glen felt the same way, so that made it easy to write the song,” said Karaban. “It was really pretty special seeing all of these amazing musicians come together and lend their talents to the project. Seeing how happy everybody was to be a part of it was amazing.”

    Here's a video showing how and why Look Me in the Eye was recorded:
