A community screening of the film “Disturbing the Peace” which documents the evolution and work of the organization Combatants for Peace. This organization is comprised of Israeli soldiers, many from elite units of the IDF, as well as Palestinians who have served prison sentences in Israel, who have joined together to seek a non-violent end to the Israeli Palestinian conflict.

Disturbing the Peace was a New York Times Critics Pick, an official selection in the Jerusalem International Film Festival, and the winner of the Ebertfest Humanitarian Award.

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with the film’s producer and director, Stephen Apkon. The screening is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
