The Struggling with Peace film series explores the key issues that emerged from the special symposium we held earlier this year:

  • understanding realities of occupation
  • taking action in meaningful ways
  • exploring critiques of dialogue, and
  • forming equitable partnerships in peace work

We suggest beginning with the film that captures one Palestinian peace builder's experience. In Struggling with Peace: One man's story, Sulaiman Khatib tells of how the separation wall encroached on his family’s land, challenging his convictions about peace building between Palestinians and Israelis.

As a complement to the films, check out the first two instalments in our special blog series, exploring these issues:

Like the symposium these films are are designed not to 'resolve' or prescribe solutions to these issues, but rather, to start or reignite thoughtful conversations about them. We hope these films explore these topics in creative and accessible ways, and serve as an entry-point for dialogue for organizations like ours, who aim to offer programs that are meaningful, impactful, ethical and worthwhile.



 Filmmaker/Facilitator Tim Hall

All four of these special films were made by 2011 Canadian youth participant Tim Hall, with support from Peace it Together staff, other youth from the 2011 Canadian delegation, and many others. To see the complete credits for these films, click here.

Since finishing the dialogue and filmmaking intensive in the summer of 2011, Tim has carried on in his work as a filmmaker and facilitator with the Canadian youth delegation, contributing his insights and energy to the community screening workshops while completing his degree in Communication and Dialogue from Simon Fraser University.


This summer, Tim will be participating in the Caux Scholars Programme in Switzerland, and traveling around the world, with stops planned in Israel and Palestine.

All of us at Peace it Together would like to thank Tim for his incredible work on these films, and wish him the very best in all his endeavours.

Thank you Tim!
