New film series to explore Israeli- Palestinian conflict

Beginning Sunday, Sept. 15 three films will be featured in a series that focuses on various aspects of the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict. With the long stalled peace talks beginning again, the Jewish Community Relations Council, The JCC Jewish Film Society and Webster University Film Series are joining together to present films to facilitate exploration of the complexities of the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict, an effort that will work across political, religious and generational divides. Each film will have a post-film discussion with knowledgeable facilitator.

• “One Day After Peace,” a documentary about reconciliation in South Africa after the end of apartheid and whether it can be a model for Israel and Palestine will take place at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15 at Webster University’s Winifred Moore Auditorium, 470 E. Lockwood in Webster Groves.

• “A Bottle in the Gaza Sea,” a feature film about communication established between and Israeli teen and a Palestinian teen living in Gaza will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 at the JCC Arts and Education Building, 2 Millstone Campus Drive in Creve Coeur.

• “Precious Life,” a documentary about a young Palestinian boy from Gaza who receives life-saving treatment at a Tel Aviv hospital and how the interaction of his Palestinian mother and the Israeli doctor define ideas about conflict takes place at 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9 at Webster U.’s Winifred Moore Auditorium.
