We invite you to view the award winning documentary film: "One Day After Peace" on your own, and then join us for a virtual panel discussion on May 20.
About the film event:
The Panel: Based on insights from the film, from Gary Mason’s vast experience in facilitating reconciliation processes in Northern Ireland during the Troubles and post Good Friday Agreement, as well as Robi Damelin’s and Bassam Aramin’s experiences as participants in reconciliation efforts between Palestinians and Israelis, Professor Jim Sebenius will moderate a panel that will explore the possibility of applying some of these lessons to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its resolution.
The film “One Day After Peace” (Screenwriters and Directors: Erez Laufer and Miri Laufer) asks whether the means used to resolve the conflict in South Africa can be applied to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. As someone who experienced both conflicts firsthand, Robi Damelin wonders about this. Born in South Africa during the apartheid era, she later lost her son, who was serving with the Israeli Army reserve in the Occupied Territories. At first she attempted to initiate a dialogue with the Palestinian who killed her child. When her overtures were rejected, she embarked on a journey back to South Africa to learn more about the country's Truth and Reconciliation Committee's efforts in overcoming years of enmity. Robi's thought-provoking journey leads from a place of deep personal pain to a belief that a better future is possible.
