Directed by Tor Ben-Mayor Israel/Palestine | 2012 | 75 minutes | Hebrew/Arabic with subtitles | Documentary
The film follows a group of 27 Palestinians and Israelis who meet under the frame of a unique project called "History through the Human Eye" led by Parents Circle-Families Forum: Bereaved Palestinian and Israelis for Peace and Reconciliation. Among them include bereaved families, Orthodox Jews and religious Muslims, settlers, ex-soldiers in the Israeli army, ex-security prisoners, citizens of the Gaza strip, kibbutz members, second generation holocaust survivors, non-violent activists and more. They are not trying to convince each other that their narrative is right, nor are they seeking a political solution. They have simply been asked to listen, to clarify the differences between how they grasp reality and how they see the other side.
