FIGHT FOR PEACE

“Can You Hear Me?
Israeli and Palestinian Women Fight
is the first documentary to explore in depth the role of Israeli and
Palestinian women peace activists dealing with one of the world’s oldest
conflicts. Though prospects for peace have ebbed and flowed between
Israelis and Palestinians, women peace activists have worked consistently to
bring an end to the bloodshed that has brought so much anguish to both
sides. No matter how desperate the political situation seemed these women
never stopped communicating with each other. They come together in their
bereavement over the loss of loved ones and to demand a better future for
their children and grandchildren. There is bonding, there is friction, there
are differences of opinion. But most of all it is a story about women who
have hope and keep on trying to hear each other.
