Voices Across The Divide
This film will be shown as part of the Pacem in Terris summer film/discussion series on great issues of our time. DelNATO is co-sponsoring the film and will lead a discussion afterwards.
Voices Across the Divide is a powerful documentary and oral history exploring the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through rarely heard personal stories. Narrated by Dr. Alice Rothchild, an American Jew raised on the tragedies of the Holocaust and the dream of a Jewish homeland in Israel, Voices Across the Divide follows her personal journey as she begins to understand the Palestinian narrative, while exploring the Palestinian experience of loss, occupation, statelessness, and immigration to the US.
The event will be held at Daughtry House, 1503 W. 13th Street (back of Westminster Church's parking lot).
