  Abstract:  Building Bridges with Multicultural Sensing. The Role of Film and Literature in Contemporary Societies. Starting from three Norwegian examples from the 2000s, two fiction films and one collection of short stories, this article shows how film and literature play an important role in shaping our affective responses to people with a different background and interpretative framework than our own. In particular, the article sheds light on how film and literature can bring us very close to the unknown, the foreign and the unpleasant and tune us affectively in ways that build bridges between people living side by side in a multicultural society. 

Keywords: literature, film, multicultural sensing, Norway.
