Very good documentary!
1 May 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary on the Tribeca film festival in New York, and it's a very impressive movie about the efforts of Israeli and Palestinian ordinary people to try to achieve peace by meeting each other and try to get to understand each other. They all have in common that they lost family members in the Israeli-Palestinian struggle (or should I say war?), but decided to put the hatred behind them and concentrate on saving the living, while still acknowledging their losses.

The movie does a good job showing how these people on both side of the fence work to achieve their goals and the difficulties they experience, and try to get other people also to leave their hatred behind, and resist hate and occupation through non-violent means. I found it a welcome glimpse into Israeli and Palestinian society, that shows there is something else possible beside fundamentalism (Jewish or Muslim).

If it is showing near you or on TV, see it if you can!
