WATCH: Jewish and Muslim Israelis looks into each others’ eyes

What happens next will give you hope...

“I approached the project as an artistic social psychology experiment,” explains producer Deborah Aroshas. “I had no idea what would happen. With the help of talented and generous friends, I put out a not-too-detailed call for participants, and went out on three days of shooting: in Jerusalem, in Beersheva and in Tel Aviv.”

“While shooting and directing this film, I uncovered a huge range of emotions: intimacy, curiosity, resistance, surprise, sadness, confusion, tension, joy. People burst into tears or laughter. They overflowed with feeling. Pain floated to the top. Many participants described the experience as unique and intense.

What do you make of it?
