In collaboration with Voices from the Holy Land, William Penn House will host a screening and discussion of the film ‘Disturbing the Peace.’ This film follows former Israeli soldiers and Palestinian fighters who joined together as nonviolent activists for peace. The film share the stories of people chose to eschew violence and begin a cross-cultural dialogue about how best to solve conflict and shape the world we live in. The people in this film came together to form Combatants for Peace, a nonviolent group that uses dialogue, theater and art as a means to bring an end the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
After the screening there will be a chance to discuss and reflect on the film with Pamela Nice, an independent filmmaker and director whose recent work includes the film ‘Letters from Cairo’ (2003), which depicts interviews with Egyptian artists and intellectuals about their views on U.S. and Egyptian culture, and ‘Dreaming in Morocco’ (2007), about the aspirations of young moroccans. Additionally, she has taught theater, Arab film and Arab literature at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. You can learn more about Pam and her work here.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. See the flyer below for more details on this event and the Friends-DC film series from Voices from the Holy Land.
