"If you lost your loved ones to violence...
If you spent ten years in prison...
If conflict drove you from your home...
Would you seek revenge?
Or struggle for peace?"
Encounter Point is an 85-minute feature documentary film that follows a former Israeli settler, a Palestinian ex-prisoner, a bereaved Israeli mother and a wounded Palestinian bereaved brother who risk their lives and public standing to promote a nonviolent end to the conflict. Their journeys lead them to the unlikeliest places to confront hatred within their communities. The film explores what drives them and thousands of other like-minded civilians to overcome anger and grief to work for grassroots solutions. It is a film about the everyday leaders in our midst.
"A riveting documentary which blazes with a kind of spiritual grace while remaining firmly ground in a tragic reality..." - Village Voice
