Audience Feedback After Screening at One World Film Festival

“What a great achievement. A very powerful film….…… it is riveting and a real roller-coaster of a journey. Jaclyn is engaging and the narrative of her personal experience is very powerful.The debate over the delegates visit to the settlement was fascinating – and important in trying to be fair to both sides in the dialogue – and an interesting microcosm of the entire dispute between Israel/Palestine.” David Stambrook

“Meaningful, moving, important film. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for taking the time, energy, and patience, to make this. It doesn’t look like it was a simple task.” Anastasia Filippova

“I’ve had a chance to further digest the impact of your film and I must admit, it becomes more powerful, honest and compelling as I reflect upon it.

Aside from the sheer technical achievement of getting that box of tapes into sufficient focus to tell a coherent story about a situation that is not always coherent, the content, and your treatment of it is astonishing. You have achieved what only the best doc makers achieve: you’ve provided a very real insight into a complex situation while at the same time, not appearing to hide your your own biases, in this case a strong, no radical commitment to peace.

I offer my unreserved admiration and respect for this most significant achievement.” Jim McDonald

“I want to congratulate you on directing this powerful documentary which did what good documentaries do, that is to educate. Thank you for shedding light on this very obscure (for me) issue.” Claire Pilon

“I saw Partners for Peace last night and just wanted to say congratulations – its a really engaging, moving film. I hope that more people get a chance to see it at other festivals.” Stephen Dale

“I just wanted to say that I found the Partners for Peace film very powerful this evening and am just sorry that I wasn’t able to stay for the discussion afterward because I can only imagine that the Q&A would be quite dynamic given how provocative and really transformative the experience of the delegates interviewed in the film had been………Great work!” Jen Grant

“Congrats on the film and the successful turnout for the screening. The movie really came together to tell a compelling story. I couldn’t believe that the music was sung by someone local. It was very authentic.” Danielle Rolfe
