Encounter Point - Film Documentary

             Encounter Point is a movie that outlines the violence in the nation of Israel, between the Israelis and Palestinians. The two nations are introduced as equals as noted in their assembly in the Bereaved Families Forum. In Figure 1 you can see a picture of the founder of this forum (Tzivka Shahak) and a newer member (George Sa'adeh). Mothers, fathers, siblings and even spouses gather in the forum to discuss lives of loved ones lost in the battle. Within the forum, both the Palestinians and Israelis forget their differences and agonize together in the shared pain of losing loved ones. Additionally, it shows some Israeli and Palestinians holding hands in both literal and figurative gestures while mourning the deaths of their loved ones. Though the two nations once stood in opposite sides of a long and bloody conflict, they come together in creating a hope and a future for their rivalry and the possibility of a peaceful coexistence. .
