Partners for Peace (Canada, 101 min)
Directed by Ed Kucerak
Nobel Peace Laureates Jody Williams and Mairead Maguire lead a delegation of women on a trip to Israel and Palestine, seeking to support women activists there who are working for peace. Mairead lands in an Israeli detention cell and while she awaits a decision on deportation from Israel, the others carry on. Shocked by soldiers with guns controlling the lives of Palestinians, the brutality of forced evictions, the deep economic roots of settlement construction, and the tone deafness of Israeli settlers, the women engage in dramatic confrontations that they never expected.
