My So Called Enemy Film Screening–
With Director Lisa Gossels
ABOUT THE MOVIE
Filmed over a seven-year period, "My So Called Enemy" follows six Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls committed to mutual understanding and a just solution to the conflict that continues to rage in their homeland, after participating in a U.S. women's leadership program called Building Bridges for Peace where they got to know their "enemies" as human beings. Lisa Gossels' highly acclaimed documentary presents the complexities of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict though a human lens - and the possibility and hope that come from listening to each other's stories.
