Best Feature Documentary, 2015
Beyond the Divide (USA, 85 min)
Directed & Produced by Jan Selby
Set in the mountainous beauty of Missoula, Montana, BEYOND THE DIVIDE is a feature-length documentary film about war, peace, and the courage to find common ground.
Fifty years have passed since the beginning of the Vietnam War. The politics and casualties are history yet deep scars remain. In Missoula, Montana, a mysterious graffiti peace symbol inflamed the animosity between those who served and those who fought a different war at home. Through the courageous acts of Vietnam veteran Dan Gallagher and peace advocate Betsy Mulligan-Dague, BEYOND THE DIVIDE illuminates a path to healing old wounds while reimagining peace. Their story inspires audiences to focus on what unites us instead of what divides us.
