Partners for Peace, a feature-length documentary film following the Nobel Women’s Initiative 2010 Delegation to Israel and Palestine, has been selected to kick-off the DC Independent Film Festival on February 19, 2014. The screening will be the film’s US premiere.
Partners for Peace is a feature-length documentary film that follows a delegation of American and Canadian women on a journey to Israel and Palestine. Led by Nobel Laureates Jody Williams and Mairead Maguire, the delegation learns about the decades-long conflict first hand. “The bloody cycle in which I live…. Is a vicious circle that is sustained by the choice of both sides to engage in violence. I refuse to take part in this choice,” says Sahar Vardi, a young activist who meets with the delegation.
Partners for Peace offers a rare window on the work of women at the grassroots in Israel and Palestine, doing the hard, often invisible and unreported work of building peace.
A panel discussion featuring director Ed Kucerak, Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, and fellow delegation member Jaclyn Friedman (Executive Director of WAM! – Women, Action, Media!) will follow the screening of the film.
