PEACING IT TOGETHER
Peacing It Together (30 min.)
Produced & Directed by Erik Paulsson and Nova Arlene Ami
Peacing it Together follows a group of Palestinian, Israeli and Canadian youth who participated in a unique peace and filmmaking camp at the Gulf Islands Film and Television School on Canada’s west coast. Organized by the Peace It Together Society, the three week experience brought together bitter enemies from across the globe to the forests of British Columbia where they learned to live and co-create in harmony. During their stay, they participated in various team building activities and dialogue sessions before being divided into small groups to create original films about the Middle East conflict. Through the lens of a camera they created seven short films that reflected their lives, fears, and hopes.
