Voices Across the Divide explores the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through rarely heard personal stories. The film is narrated by its director Alice Rothchild, an American Jew raised on the tragedies of the Holocaust and the dream of a Jewish homeland in Israel. Through interviews of Palestinians in the US, historical and modern day photos and footage, and maps, she explores Palestinian experiences of loss, occupation, statelessness and immigration to the US, and she begins to understand the Palestinian experiences as well as the implications for deeply held cultural beliefs in the Jewish community. In giving voice to the Palestinians, the film humanizes the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and gives voice to the Jews across the divide. Ms. Rothchild, just back from a Health and Human Rights Delegation to Israel and the West Bank, will introduce the film and lead a Q&A following its screening.
