Dates: Thu Jun 13, 19

Time: 6:30pm

2019 kia 061319 white 72

This film profiles a self-formed group of twelve
ordinary women, six Arabs and six Jews, calling
themselves Zeitouna, the Arab word for olive
tree. Some of the women are American-born,
others are immigrants; one is a Holocaust
survivor, another is a survivor of the Nakbah s terror; their ages
span 40 years. The film does not attempt to answer questions
of right and wrong, or how to break the deadlock of the Middle
East conflict. Instead, it offers living proof of how the journey
of personal transformation may pave the way to socio-political
transformation and peace. Ann Arbor Filmmaker Laurie White is
a founding member of Zeitouna and will be here with additional
Zeitouna members for a discussion after the screening.
$5 for non-members/$2 for students/free for members, active military, youth 12 & under, and school groups.
