Earlier this month, we received a special message from one of our 2011 program participants, Iftach Shapira. We are delighted that he has agreed to let us share it with you.
Peace it Together is proud to work alongside other organizations around the world committed to fostering understanding amongst groups in conflict, promoting nonviolent forms of engagement, and ultimately cultivating a culture of peace, on this International Day of Peace, September 21 2012.
In anticipation of his triathlon on Saturday, September 1, longtime supporter of Peace it Together, David Fainsilber, has created this special video message:
If there's one thing you can count on at a Peace it Together film screening, it's conversation. The discussion that is spurred by a film screening is always powerful, productive and valuable in its own right. The real challenge, however, remains inspiring audience members to extend these encounters into an ongoing commitment to peace-building, long after the screen has gone dark.
One screening in the Middle East appears to have done just that.
Peace it Together is proud to announce that five films from the 2011 program - Movement, In the Presence of Absence, Spectrum, Grave Digging and Through a Glass, Darkly - have been selected for the BolderLife Film Festival.
