Birth Of A Conflict

Israel | Documentary Series | 2022        Three episodes, 56 min. each

Never-seen-before archival film and audio recordings dating back to the British Mandate of Palestine bring the complex history of Israel-Palestine to life. Birth of a Conflict takes a deep dive into the origins of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with Arab and Israeli historians  represented in equal measure. The series explores the significant events and personalities that made possible the founding of the State of Israel but failed to achieve the same for Palestinians.

The second episode of the series tells the story of how the Jewish-Arab conflict turned from a territorial quarrel between two national movements into a religious conflict.  This chapter sheds new light on one of the most important, yet unknown events in the history of Palestine--the Great Arab Revolt.

CHILDREN OF PEACE  -  Documentary – Israel, 2022  -  60 min. A group of dreamers  founded an intentional community of Arabs and Jews, Neve Shalom, in 1970’s Israel. It was a rebellious and utopian idea: Jews and Arabs living and going to school together as friends and neighbors, learning each others' language and culture. Children who were brought up in this unique environment, now grown men and women, deal with the harsh realities of political turmoil and war.
