Healing Children of Conflict to host Spring Film Series on Israel/Palestine

February 8, 2012

The Grand Rapids group Healing Children of Conflict (HCC) is hosting another film series over the next several months on both the GVSU and Calvin campuses.

The three-film series looks at the Middle East, with particular emphasis on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The first film is a documentary entitled, The Iron Wall, which looks at the Israeli settler expansion and the massive wall that is still under construction and is creating tremendous animosity amongst Palestinians.

The second film in the series is the 2008 animated documentary entitled, Waltz with Bashir. Waltz with Bashir looks at the horrors of the 1982 Lebanon War. The third film in the series is the 2006 film, Encounter Point. This film tells the story of an Israeli settler, a Palestinian ex-prisoner, a bereaved Israeli mother and a wounded Palestinian bereaved brother who sacrifice their safety, public standing and homes in order to press for a grassroots movement for nonviolence and peace.

The HCC film series is part of the groupā€™s mission, which is to do education work around global conflicts that the US is involved and children are being seriously wounded. All 6 film-screening dates are free and open to the public.
