HCC concludes Middle East film series this week

April 2, 2012

The group Healing Children of Conflict is hosting the third film in its Spring series this week, with showings at both GVSU and Calvin College.

The last film in the series is the documentary film Encounter Point. Encounter Point is an 85-minute feature documentary film that follows a former Israeli settler, a Palestinian ex-prisoner, a bereaved Israeli mother and a wounded Palestinian bereaved brother who risk their lives and public standing to promote a nonviolent end to the conflict. Their journeys lead them to the unlikeliest places to confront hatred within their communities. The film explores what drives them and thousands of other like-minded civilians to overcome anger and grief to work for grassroots solutions. It is a film about the everyday leaders in our midst.
