Disturbing the Peace is about people born into conflict, sworn to be enemies, who
 challenged their fate. The film follows everyday people who took extraordinary actions by
standing for what they believe in, just like those who came before them – Martin Luther 
King Jr., Rosa Parks, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and many others whose names we don’t
 know. The movie challenges all of us – to understand the narratives we live within, to look
 at our current roles in our societies, and to decide what role we are going to play in
 creating a more humane world, for all. And it starts with our willingness to disturb the

In a world torn by conflict—in a place where the idea of peace has been abandoned—an 
energy of determined optimism emerges. When someone is willing to disturb the status
 quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world, who will stand with them?

DISTURBING THE PEACE is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop 
participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take 
action to create new possibilities. DISTURBING THE PEACE follows former enemy 
combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom 
served years in prison – who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say 
“enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to 
armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for 
Peace. While based in the Middle East, DISTURBING THE PEACE evokes universal 
themes relevant to us all and inspires us to become active participants in the creation of
 our world.
