The human face of conflict. war, political threat, Intifada, struggle for the good life, women and their loved ones searching for the "good life" under war. Israel, the Israel Palestinian conflict.
I remember that, during the second Palestinian Intifada in Israel, psychiatrists warned not to watch too much news, that too much violence, too many upsetting stories, traumatizes people. Do you feel that way today, here in the US, or around the western world?
How do you juggle your need to keep abreast with what is happening in the world--all the awful Isis related reporting---with your need to remain happy, sane?
Israela: secrets, lies, and alienation. Heroism. Arabs saving Jews and Jews healing Arabs in Israel. Israela: An eternal struggle for peace. Three women and their loved ones seeking the "good life" under war. The complex social structure of Israel, tradition, history, war, Intifada, and love.
