"Disturbing the Peace" follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace.
At a time in our world when societies are becoming more polarized and painfully few people are speaking of nonviolent solutions to our conflicts, popular movements like Combatants for Peace have the potential to capture the public’s imagination and shift the conversation from the inevitability of conflict, to the possibility and process of establishing lasting peace. Disturbing the Peace evokes universal themes relevant to us all and inspires us to become active participants in the creation of our world.
After the film we will have a moderated discussion. Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions to resist the Bannon agenda.
