One Day After Peace

A film by Erez Laufer and Miri Laufer

One Day After Peace

“… a layered, carefully rendered exploration of one woman's attempt to find her way through a horror which doesn't yield to platitudes or a simple division of sides … the documentary is a rare gift in the growing body of documentary film dedicated to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict …”
✩✩✩✩
Torontoist - April 23, 2012

Can the means used to resolve the conflict in South Africa be applied to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict? As someone who experienced both conflicts firsthand, Robi Damelin wonders about this. Born in South Africa during the apartheid era, she later lost her son, who was serving with the Israeli Army reserve in the Occupied Territories. At first she attempted to initiate a dialogue with the Palestinian who killed her child. When her overtures were rejected, she embarked on a journey back to South Africa to learn more about the country's Truth and Reconciliation Committee's efforts in overcoming years of enmity. Robi's thought-provoking journey leads from a place of deep personal pain to a belief that a better future is possible.

Because of its contribution to the field of conflict resolution, this film also had a special screening and panel discussion at The United Nations headquarters on October 9th, 2012.

Recommendations:

“… Most extraordinary of all, however, is the footage of former Apartheid Law & Order Minister Adriaan Vlok interacting with the families of his victims in South Africa. There's one particular scene where a woman in Soweto unexpectedly recognises Vlok, which will haunt you long after the screening. …” Daily Maverick - June 7, 2012

“… This powerful and beautifully made film features, among others, APLA military director Letlapa Mphahlele, who ordered the Heidelberg Tavern bombing, Ginn Fourie, the mother of one of the victims and, most powerful of all, an apparently contrite Adriaan Vlok, Apartheid’s last Minister of Law and Order. …” What's On! Johannesburg

“… this film is jam-packed with raw emotion and complex geopolitical issues … a powerful and moving testament to a woman's courage and the potential for healing in one of the world's most intractable conflict zones…” ✩ Toronto.com - May 2, 2012
