April 3, 2017 –
In a place defined by conflict, where many people have abandoned the idea of peace, emerges the energy of determined optimism. Disturbing the Peace follows a group of former Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinians who fought against them – including many who served years in prison. The group, named Combatants for Peace, comes together to say “enough!” and to support each other’s journeys to a steadfast belief in non-violence. A story of the human potential for hope and unity.
While set in the Middle East, Disturbing the Peace evokes universal themes relevant to us all. Winner of the first Ebert Humanitarian Award, which recognizes films that exemplify humanity and empathy.
