Converging on a secluded island off the west coast of Canada, a group of Israeli, Palestinian, and Canadian teenagers participated in a unique peace and filmmaking camp. Organized by the Peace It Together Society, the three-week experience brought together bitter enemies from across the globe to the forests of British Columbia where they learned to live and co-create in harmony. During the Peace it Together summer program, award-winning filmmakers Erik Paulsson and Nova Ami followed several Israeli and Palestinian youth on their remarkable and inspiring journeys of hope, to produce this powerful and heart-warming documentary.
Through the lens of a camera they created seven short films that reflected their lives, fears, and hopes.
This double-disc set contains these seven short films, as well as Peacing It Together, a 29-minute documentary that follows the students on their remarkable and inspiring journeys. Also included is an hour-and-a-half of additional footage, featuring workshops, discussions and additional interviews. An extensive teacherís guide is also available for classroom use.
