Since 2005, Israelis and Palestinians have been working for peace, side by side and non-violent, united as the Combatants for Peace. Aided by the support of archival material, filmmakers Stephen Apkon and Andrew Young tell the story of this assertive group.
This lecture is being held by Palestinian Jamel Qassas and Israeli Assaf Yacobovitz, both active within the movement Combatants for Peace.
