Creativity for Peace presents Budrus
"For those who despair of ever seeing peace in the Middle East, Budrus offers both sobering and cheering evidence that progress is possible." –Washington Post
Palestinian leader, Ayed Morrar, unites Fatah, Hamas and Israelis in an unarmed movement to save his village from destruction by Israel's Separation Barrier. Success eludes them until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women's contingent that quickly moves to the front lines. Struggling side by side, father and daughter unleash an inspiring, yet little-known, movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories that is still gaining ground today. While this film is about one Palestinian village, it tells a much bigger story about what is possible in the Middle East. All proceeds will benefit Creativity for Peace. (U.S., 2009, 70m, digital)
