Alice Rothchild, author of Broken Promises, Broken Dreams (Pluto, 2007; 2010) has helped create a new documentary film, Voices Across the Divide, which she also narrates. The documentary, which explores the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through oft-unheard personal stories, is premièring at the Boston Palestine Film Festival, taking place on 18-27 October, 2013.
Voices Across the Divide explores the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through rarely heard personal stories. Narrated by Alice Rothchild, an American Jew raised on the tragedies of the Holocaust and the dream of a Jewish homeland in Israel, the film follows her personal journey as she begins to understand the Palestinian narrative, while exploring the Palestinian experience of loss, occupation, statelessness, and immigration to the US.
The documentary is both a personal journey to understand the Palestinian narrative as well as the implications and contradictions of deeply held cultural beliefs in the Jewish community.
For all those able to attend the film festival, the director will be in conversation following the screening. We strongly encourage anyone in the area to attend.
