Israeli and Palestinian Peace Activists

A film by Walter Wehmeyer 2015 (60 mins)

The protagonists of this film are Israelis and Palestinians who attempt the impossible - every Friday, they meet to walk towards the Israeli soldiers. Palestinians from the village of Nabi Saleh and their Jewish supporters protest against the Israelis who have built a settlement on the property of the villagers. Dror Etkes is an Israeli who has documented the expansion of Israeli settlements - he shows how facts on the ground are increasingly preventing a two-state solution.

Nine years ago, we met a young Israeli called Ben at a peace camp (cf. Middle East - Trauma and Hopes of the Young). Ben was 14 at the time and convinced that both nations should live in a single state. Ahmad, a now 24-year-old Palestinian, also makes a reappearance in the film: nine years ago, we filmed him during his therapy after the trauma he suffered in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Palestinian philosopher Sari Nusseibeh looks towards the future and discusses different visions of a coexistence based on partnership. This is a film about people and their peaceful fight for equal rights of Israelis and Palestinians.
