Disturbing The Peace

Disturbing The Peace is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities. Disturbing The Peace follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace.

While based in the Middle East, Disturbing The Peace evokes universal themes relevant to us all and inspires us to become active participants in the creation of our world. Andy Webster of the New York Times noted, “their stories are compelling – and persuasive.” Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times described it as “a vital, absorbing documentary.”
