Feb 5, 2015

In the film Beyond Right and Wrong, a mother who survived the deaths of her five children tries to come to terms with the man who murdered them. Another victim's daughter befriends the bomber who killed her father. And two men, one Israeli, one Palestinian, form an ever-lasting bond after their daughters were killed due to the bloodshed and mistrust on the Palestinian-Israeli front. These survivors from Rwanda, Northern Ireland, and Israel-Palestine share their powerful stories of misfortune and recovery in their own words.

Through film raise and awareness, the organization Operation Kids will donate 50 cents per view to the construction of the first ever high school for the deaf in Qalqilya, Palestine. There are an estimated 43,000 deaf people in Palestine who suffer from a lack of resources and educational opportunities, since all education for the hearing impaired ends at 9th grade. Through the Sister Cities Program of Gainesville, Florida and the municipality of Qualiya, the land, utilities, and promised teachers salaries have been granted. Over 70% of the bugdet has already been committed by many passionate individuals and organizations promoting peaceful change in our shared world. By simply watching this film, you too can provide the means to send a deaf child in Palestine to high school for the very first time!
