Disturbing The Peace: Documentary and Q & A
- Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 7:00pm
- Rialto Theater, 10 West Main St. Bozeman
In 2006, Israeli and Palestinian former combatants, people who had taken an active role in the conflict, laid down their weapons and established Combatants for Peace. The egalitarian, bi-national, grassroots movement was founded on the belief that the cycle of violence can only be broken when Israelis and Palestinians join forces. Combatants for Peace is the only organization, worldwide, in which former fighters on both sides of an active conflict have laid down their weapons, choosing to work together for peace and justice. They were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, 2017.
Disturbing the Peace is an award-winning documentary made about the movement. After the film, two leading members of the organization, founder and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Suliman Khatib and IDF veteran Rami ben-Ari, will join us in the theater via skype for a Q&A and share the work that they are doing to end the occupation and bring peace to their homeland.
This event, which is a fundraiser for Combatants for Peace, is presented by the Rialto Theater and is cosponsored by the Department of Political Science at MSU.
This is an all ages event. The event starts at 7pm. Doors open at 6pm.
