Little Town of Bethlehem, by Jim Hanon (77’)
In association with Ethnographic Media
An inspiring true story of three men in a land gripped by fear, hatred, and division. Expected to be enemies, they instead strive together to end the cycle of violence.
This award-winning documentary captures the story of three men born into violence who now risk everything to find a path to peace through non-violent resistance. Sami is a Palestinian Christian, Ahmad a Palestinian Muslim, and Yonatan an Israeli Jew. Inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi, each learned that peace is possible when adversaries discover the humanity in one another. This film offers a model for conflict resolution that reaches far beyond the Holy Land.
Little Town of Bethlehem discovers the humanity lurking behind an ancient cycle of violence.
