Film Screening: Disturbing the Peace

submitted by

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.

The Minneapolis screening will take place here at Augsburg’s campus:
When: Wednesday, February 8 from 7-9 p.m.
Where: Sateren Auditorium, Augsburg College, 2211 Riverside Avenue

The premiere will be followed by a discussion with members of Combatants for Peace and moderated by UMN Theater Professor Sonja Kuftinec.

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

Note: The film does contain some scenes of graphic violence from the conflict in Israel and Palestine.
