"Peacing It Together" Unites Israeli and Palestinian Teens


Peace It Together is a three-week camp that unites Palestinians, Israelis, and Canadians as they make a film together. The camp aims to empower youth to promote peace through dialogue, film-making, and multimedia production.

Film-making is the chosen avenue to reach these goals because the film-making process requires participants to make deep inquiries, collaborate, and compromise with one another. Their film work provides the youth with a common purpose. "Peacing It Together" is a 30-minute documentary that follows the youth as they work together.

The documentary is now available on DVD and includes seven short films made by the students at the camp.
