Encounter Point

Time Out says

Reading about high-level peace talks is one thing. Hearing a middle-aged man state matter-of-factly, “I feel sorry for the terrorist who killed my daughter” is something else entirely. Encounter Point profiles everyday Israelis and Palestinians who have channeled their grief into resolution rather than revenge, educating young people and communing with their would-be-enemy counterparts via groups like Bereaved Families’ Forum. Ronit Avni and Julia Bacha never flinch from the brutal tragedies these men and women have endured, thereby capturing the heroism of their nonviolent choice. (Opens Fri; Quad.) — Hank Shteamer
