Dear Friends,

We are very proud that we can offer & distribute the film to libraries when it's still showing in Festivals/theatres across the globe. See full list here.

ONE DAY AFTER PEACE has had a strong impact on people who watch it, we've been thrilled at the impact it made on the audiences and the views & discussions it arises. When making a documentary film, we ask ourselves – can the film make a change? Can a film move peoples' minds and hearts?

With this film I and the filmmakers believe WE CAN.

And I'm the proud father of the Filmmakers Erez & Miri Laufer

ONE DAY AFTER PEACE was screened lat month at
The United Nations headquarters in New York City. Recognized for its contribution to the field of conflict resolution. On the panel were Mohammed Abu-Nimer, Ph.D. from the International Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR) from American University, Robi Damelin and Erez Laufer.

It was recently featured in Unspoken Human Rights film festival in Utica, NY Syracuse International film festival and Show Me Justice Film Festival- (Won the Jury Award for Feature Films). These three festivals are connected to universities.

Erez accounts: "During the time spent in South Africa, I couldn't stop thinking; if they overcame their conflict it is possible for us as well? After all, there was so much hate in SA. I was fascinated by The Truth and Reconciliation Commission model has been used in a modified form in disputed areas all over the world."
