"The rational middle does something incredibly special in the sense that it brings together experts who understand both sides of the spectrum," said founder of the project Gregory Kallenberg, who also directs the films.
Kallenberg said that those experts “don't all have to be in agreement in the middle. They just have to be in a place where they can present the information, which lays down a foundation for that discussion which leads to a solution.” Executive Producer Loren Steffy, a former Houston Chronicle columnist, says the project breaks down the complexity of the issues and cuts through a lot of the misunderstanding.
The discussion in Austin at the Bullock Museum on the evening of March 26 will include former Texas House State Affairs Committee Chairman Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, Rep. Mary Gonzalez, D-Clint, Denise Gilman from the University of Texas School of Law, and Mesa SW Restaurants CEO Jim Baron.
