Peaceful Protest in the West Bank

November 17, 2010

Filmmaker Julia Bacha.

Welcome to Women, War & Peace’s podcast series with our host, Amy Costello. Each week, Amy will be talking to people who have responded creatively to the plight of women living in conflict zones.

This week documentary filmmaker Julia Bacha takes us to the Middle East to explore the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. Her new film, Budrus, centers on a Palestinian village that embraces non-violent protest when Israeli security forces plan on building a separation wall through town.

One 15-year-old Palestinian girl decides to stand up to the Israeli military and creates a movement uniting women in peaceful opposition.
