Two-Sided Story: You May Not Kill Anybody In the Name of My Child

Abby Zimet

Two-Sided Story, a new documentary, follows a group of bereaved Palestinians and Israelis as they meet, cry, talk, listen and attempt to acknowledge the narrative of the other. The film is a joint Israeli/Palestinian production under the auspices of "History through the Human Eye," a project of a group of 600 Israeli and Palestinian families working toward reconciliation as the Parents Circle Families Forum. These people are strength itself. And hope and faith, against all odds.

"I don't know what revenge means. How many people should I kill? Would that bring David back? I was very motivated to find something that would prevent other families experiencing this pain."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
