Beyond the Classroom presents "Little Town of Bethlehem"

Description:
Can peace be advanced through nonviolent citizen action? Little Town of Bethlehem follows the story of three men of three different faiths and their lives in Israel and Palestine. The story explores each mans choice of nonviolent action amidst a culture of overwhelming violence. This inspirational film examines the struggle to promote equality through nonviolent engagement in the midst of incredible violence that has dehumanized all sides. Samis story begins as a young boy living in the Israeli-occupied West Bank; Yonatans starts on an Israeli military base; and Ahmads begins in a Palestinian refugee camp. Sami, Yonatan, and Ahmad each describe key historical events from their unique perspective, interjecting personal reflections and explaining how these events led them to become involved in the nonviolence movement. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 19, 2011
