Dreams Deferred: The Struggle for Peace and Justice in Israel and Palestine (2011)

0.0 ·
0

Travel to Israel and the West Bank to learn about the occupation and the nonviolent Israeli and Palestinian peace and justice movement that has received little coverage in mainstream U.S. media. While most American audiences associate the conflict only with war and terrorism, this documentary highlights the voices, opinions, and actions of Israelis and Palestinians who are struggling to nonviolently end the Israeli occupation and achieve a just resolution to the conflict. In addition to sit-down interviews, the filmmakers accompany Israeli activists to a demonstration against the separation barrier in Bil'in, take a tour of Hebron with a Palestinian human rights activist, document their experience during an extended military curfew in Jayyous, and follow Israeli activists around settlements and new construction in East Jerusalem. Audiences are introduced to several Israelis and Palestinians who each have their own unique experiences and opinions about the situation, including former Israeli soldiers and refusers, as well as former Palestinian militants, and a range of nonviolence activists. Interviewees express their thoughts about the conflict, including the obstacles to peace, their reasons for becoming activists, the role of the U.S., the importance of nonviolence, and prospects for a future resolution that recognizes the rights of both peoples. Interviews and first-hand tours reveal perspectives and realities that defy stereotypes and humanize people on both sides.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
