Disturbing the Peace
w/ Tzeva Adom: Color Red
DISTURBING THE PEACE
Director: Stephen Apkon, Andrew Young
Disturbing the Peace follows a group of former enemy combatants - Israeli soldiers from the most elite units, and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison - who have come together to challenge the status quo and say "enough." The film traces their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to non-violent peace activists and their founding of Combatants for Peace (CfP). It is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us, and take action to create a new possibility with the power of our convictions.
TZEVA ADOM: COLOR RED
Director: Michael Horwitz
Tzeva Adom: Color Red tells the story of Ronit, a female soldier serving in the Israeli Defense Forces, and Omar, a young Palestinian boy who gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. When she shows compassion towards him and his older brother, tensions begin to rise on both sides of the border. Now she must come to terms with what's right and what’s smart in a world where social media runs rampant, everyone has cameras in their pockets, and acts of terrorism have become normal.
