“Can You Hear Me? Israeli and Palestinian Women Fight for Peace” is the first documentary to explore in depth the role of Israeli and Palestinian women peace activists dealing with one of the world¹s oldest conflicts. Though prospects for peace have ebbed and flowed between Israelis and Palestinians, women peace activists have worked consistently to bring an end to the bloodshed that has brought so much anguish to both sides. No matter how desperate the political situation seemed, these women never stopped communicating with each other. They come together in their bereavement over the loss of loved ones and to demand a better future for their children. There is bonding, there is friction, and there are differences of opinion. But most of all, it is a story about women who have hope and keep on trying to hear each other. (2006, 50 min.,
Director/Producer/Writer: Lilly Rivlin)

Followed by: Iraqi Women Speak Out (DVD, 2006, 20 min.)
