Filmmaker screening presented with Nebraskans for Peace. A Q&A with co-director Stephen Apkon will follow the film.
DISTURBING THE PEACE follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. While based in the Middle East, DISTURBING THE PEACE evokes universal themes relevant to us all and inspires us to become active participants in the creation of our world.
Following the film will be an audience Q&A with filmmaker Stephen Apkon moderated by Douglas Paterson, Professor of Theatre at the University of Nebraska Omaha and Nebraskans for Peace member.
