“Disturbing the Peace,” documentary, June 2, 2020 (2016). Members of Combatants for Peace, men and women on both sides, made this film over a decade to show their entry into peace work and their efforts to bridge the seemingly unbridgeable gap between Israelis and Palestinians. The Israelis had all served in the IDF, the Palestinians had been in prison for violent actions. They viewed one another as the enemy, even using the same language to describe one another “with blood on their hands.” These men and women evolved into mutual respect and ‘friendship’ even as their families and partners, their home communities, rejected them. They have come to believe that the only way to peace is a peaceful way. Not passive, but non-violent. There are moments of profound pathos as they walk with puppets in non-violent resistance together on both sides of the wall while carrying huge “bread and puppet”-like puppets. Their openness and honesty are deeply moving. Has time passed them by with one-state versus two-state solutions? Is there any hope here? I, for one, still hope so.
