Hello Cool World joined the program on the first day of fllming, which happened this year on campus at the University of British Columbia. We also did interviews with founder and exec director Reena Lazar and others including our own HCW cohort, Atef Abdelkefi,  who has been volunteering for Peace it Together for many years. Pictured above, Atef is showing the group of youth the filming equipment on day 1 of the filmmaking part of the project. We will be at the premiere and doing a few follow up interviews, then watch for our own mini-doc 'Vlog" (Video blog!)

Peacing It Together

30 Teenagers, 7 Short Films & 1 Dream of Peace

Converging on a secluded island off the west coast of Canada, a group of Israeli, Palestinian, and Canadian teenagers participated in a unique peace and filmmaking camp. The three-week experience brought together bitter enemies from across the globe to the forests of British Columbia where they learned to live and co-create in harmony. During the Peace it Together summer program, award-winning filmmakers Erik Paulsson and Nova Ami followed several Israeli and Palestinian youth on their remarkable and inspiring journeys of hope, to produce this powerful and heart-warming documentary.
