The film Disturbing the Peace tells the story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and inspires hope in the possibility for change by featuring founding members of CfP and their transformation from active participants in the cycle of violence to nonviolent activists. This powerful film is used both as part of the Encounters project and is a project on its own. The film was debuted in June 2016 in Jerusalem and since then has toured the globe. Disturbing the Peace was featured at the Traverse City Film Festival, hosted by Michael Moore; Boston Jewish Films Festival, and Hamptons International Film Festival and has screened in private spaces and theaters in London, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and more. Currently the film is on tour in Israel and Palestine, with screenings in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Ramallah and more. In 2017, CfP and Reconsider coordinated at least 10 screenings followed by a Q&A per month in Israel and Palestine, additionally, in June 2017, the movie was made available for streaming on Netflix, to reach ever-growing audiences. The film publicizes CfP’s work, as well as spreads our values, portrays a model of Israeli-Palestinian cooperation, and inspires hope in large quantities of viewers. This directly contributes to our strategic goal of catalyzing a mass change in public opinion, as it moves people from despair and apathy to hope.
