  2. A husband and wife team of first-time filmmakers traveled to Israel and the West Bank to document the nonviolent Israeli and Palestinian peace and justice movement that has received little coverage in mainstream U.S. media. The result is the feature-length documentary Dreams Deferred: The Struggle for Peace and Justice in Israel and Palestine. While most American audiences associate the conflict only with war and terrorism, this documentary highlights the voices, opinions, and actions of the growing number of Israelis and Palestinians who are struggling to nonviolently end the Israeli occupation and achieve a just resolution to the conflict. In addition to sit-down interviews, the filmmakers accompany Israeli activists to a demonstration against the separation barrier in Bil’in, take a tour of Hebron with a Palestinian human rights activist, document their experience during an extended military curfew in Jayyous, and follow Israeli activists around settlements and new construction in East Jerusalem. Rather than focusing on one or two personal stories, audiences are introduced to several Israelis and Palestinians who each have their own unique experiences and opinions about the situation, including former Israeli soldiers and refusers, as well as former Palestinian militants, and a range of nonviolence activists. Interviewees express their thoughts about the conflict, including the obstacles to peace, their reasons for becoming activists, the role of the U.S., the importance of nonviolence, and prospects for a future resolution that recognizes the rights of both peoples. Interviews and first-hand tours reveal perspectives and realities that defy stereotypes and humanize people on both sides.

    Produced, Directed, Edited, and Filmed by Jennifer Hitchcock and Vernon Hall
