Description 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.

This documentary tells the story of a group of young people who take part in an illegal act of civil disobedience to protest the destruction of a nature reserve in Brazil. The filmmakers approach this topic from a very realistic perspective and manage to avoid the overdramatization that is common in documentaries of this kind. The most obvious example is the way in which the film never glamorizes the actions of the group, and instead presents it as a deeply personal experience of the participants. The people involved are portrayed as being somewhat heroic and not the stereotypical "teen rebels" we often see in the media. This allows the film to focus on the issues that matter most, without going into a discussion of whether the acts were right or wrong. The most important thing about the film is that it is presented in a way that makes it accessible to anyone who has ever participated in any kind of protest. There are no "wasted" minutes. Everyone involved in the protests has a story to tell, and this film makes it possible to listen to these stories and relate to them. The film does not dwell on the political motives behind the protest, and instead makes a point of presenting the personal experiences of the people involved. The first time I watched this film, I was in Brazil and I was surprised at how similar the film looked to what I had seen on TV. The way in which the film is shot is also very different. In the documentary I was only able to see the film on the first day of its release. I wish the film had been shown in a more accessible format.

In "The Taming of the Shrew", the British film director Mike Leigh uses film to teach a lesson to a group of young adults about the ways in which the present social system encourages and perpetuates inequality and conflict. His message is that the present system of social justice is destructive, oppressive, and unfair. The film examines how, through the social systems of war, social exclusion, and poverty, people can be manipulated into the decisions they make in society. The film follows the life of two young adults, a woman and a man, from childhood through adulthood. One of the women is a graduate student in art history at a London college. The other is a housewife. She has the same sort of problems with her husband that the women in "Pleasantville" have. The film shows how they react to the crisis of their lives when they become aware of the way their society is being manipulated by the system of war and poverty. Leigh's film is full of painful images. He uses the film to teach his audience the difference between the institutions of war and the institutions of social justice. This is not a film for everyone. It is heavy and not everyone will be able to handle it. There are long scenes of graphic violence, including scenes of rape and rape-by-torture. Leigh does not present the issues of social justice in a way that is easily accessible to the average viewer. His film is not a film for people who have never heard of social justice issues. It is a film that people should see, not just once but many times. Leigh's message is not just about social justice, but about how the social systems of war and poverty make people behave. The film is not preachy. It is a powerful, thought-provoking film that will make you think about how you think about the world, about your role in it, and about your place in it.
