One Day After Peace
A short report on our film.

To date, over sixty film festivals have screened the film, seventy academic libraries have purchased it, and it has had many special screenings at film clubs all over the globe, including one very special screening at United Nations headquarters in New York City last year.

We are very proud of our successes so far in spreading the message of peace, co-existence and reconciliation.We hope that more and more universities, colleges, schools, churches, mosques, synagogues, peace institutes, and community centers will join our efforts by screening the film to wide publics.

The film premiered at Hot-Docs Toronto, followed by important venues: IDFA Best of Fest, Warsaw IFF, Syracuse Doc IFF, Hamptons IFF, Korea DMZ, San-Francisco JFF to mention a few.

We're now offering DVDs with subtitles in English, Hebrew, Arabic, French and Italian. Additional versions with German and Spanish subtitles are in the works.

By the end of October we will be offering a 60-minute version specially adapted for high schools in Israel and Palestine. Thanks to support from the Movies That Matter Festival in The Netherlands for starting an education program in Israel and Palestine. We would appreciate additional support so we could send DVDs to these high schools free of charge.

"...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 Please share this widely. I have seen this film several times and screened it with peace builders from around the world and it is an amazing resource –Prof Craig Zelizer Georgetown University & PCDN


Peace may be difficult to imagine, but this brave and inspiring film puts the process in a global, historical context that helps us glimpse what might be possible… — Urban Times London, May 8, 2012
