God's Neighbors: Meni Yaish
Jury statement: "God's Neighbors is a memorable exploration of the relation between religion and justice, violence and love. It gives insight to contemporary religious practices of orthodox Jews. It illustrates the joy of faith in juxtaposition with violence that is done in the name of faith. God's Neighbors approaches sensitive topics with nuance and respect. The film contributes to increased understanding of religion in daily life as well as religion in conflict. It, furthermore, reminds us of the contribution of the individual and of the co-operation of men and women. It takes a firm stand against violence in the name of religion and shows a way out of conflict."
