Refusing to be Enemies: the Zeitouna Story

This 58-minute documentary by Ann Arbor filmmaker Laurie White, shares the experiences of Zeitouna (“olive tree” in Arabic) – a women’s dialogue group in Ann Arbor, Michigan that was formed in 2002. Six of the Zeitouna women are of Arab descent and six are of Jewish descent. Some are native born and some are immigrants. What they all have in common is their humanity and their desire to bridge the gulf that has developed between their two communities. They chose the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as the focus of the group and use the dialogue process as a means of personal transformation leading to socio-political transformation. Laurie White, writer/director/producer, www.zeitounamovie.org.
