ADAPT Film Series: To Die in Jerusalem

to-die1ADAPT invites you to a screening of  To Die in Jerusalem:

After two 17-year old girls – one an Israeli, the other a Palestinian suicide bomber – die in a Jerusalem market, their mothers confront each other, revealing a microcosm of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the complexity of reconciliation. Through the personal stories of the two families’ losses and by contrasting the lives and deaths of these two teenage girls, TO DIE IN JERUSALEM offers a personal human perspective that is all too often eclipsed by the political issues.

Date: Monday, April 27th
Time: 8:00 PM

    I was just tangentially disagreeing with #1, not making any statement about the movie (which looks interesting, btw). Sorry for the confusion

    Neither of these comments get at what the movie is about.

    By “complexity of reconciliation,” we mean just the opposite of “all you need is love/lets just get along.”

    Lets start again: The movie follows an Israeli mother who thinks she wants peace, but only wants peace on her own terms. Its a very interesting look into the Israeli mindset, in which peace comes to mean Palestinian complacency. I’m sorry your prior assumptions got in the way of your education.

    Not everything is that simple, unfortunately. I’m the last person to say this, but sometimes the solutions isn’t just “we’re all right; let’s all get along”. (Though I wish we would all get along).
