Disturbing the Peace 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 to nonviolent peace activists leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. They stand in a long line of individuals – from Gandhi to MLK Jr., to Rosa Parks–willing to “disturb the peace,” in an effort to move us all toward a more just and peaceful world.

Co-sponsored by: University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts & Dance and Institute for Advanced Study, Augsburg College – Nobel Peace Prize Forum, and East Side Freedom Library

This Minneapolis premiere will be followed by discussion with members of Combatants for Peace. Moderated by UMN Theater Professor Sonja Kuftinec.
