Arna's Children

The current middle east situation blowing up in our faces and the pundits will be spinning. I want to suggest you check out this incredible film--Arna's Children. (It's available at Netflix).

This film covers a ten year period and documents an Israeli woman's work with Palestinian children creating a local theatre troupe. It reveals their relationships with each other and the larger conflict around them. It presents a picture of the human side of this conflict that is severely neglected by the corporate controlled press with their globalization perspective.

It really is a great movie.
