Disturbing the Peace, Loyola University Chicago


Loyola University Chicago Department of Fine and Performing Arts presents Disturbing the Peace

Monday, February 13, 7pm
Damen Cinema, Damen Student Center, Loyola University Chicago, Illinois
FREE and open to the public. RSVP here.
Post-screening discussion featuring special guests and Combatants for Peace members Mohammed Owedah and Chen Alon!

Disturbing the Peace is about people born into conflict, sworn to be enemies, who challenged their fate. It follows former enemy combatants–Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison–who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. This movie shows everyday people who took extraordinary actions by standing for what they believe in. Moreover, it challenges all of us to understand the narratives we live within, to look at our current roles in our societies, and to decide what role we are going to play in creating a more humane world, for all. And it starts with our willingness to disturb the peace.

Immediately following the film screening will be a discussion with special guests and Combatants for Peace members Mohammed Owedah and Chen Alon!
