A documentary about peace in the Israel/Palestine conflict as a follow up to our 2010 film, From the Eyes of Hope.

Anna Medearis and Joe Miller created Within Broken Borders in 2010 as a platform to educate young adults about the Israel-Palestine conflict and allow for participation in the move towards reconciliation.  That summer Anna and Joe headed to the Middle East and created their first documentary.  The film, From the Eyes of Hope, provided a brief history and overview of the conflict.  Primarily the film sought to express hope and show movements towards reconciliation and peace.  In the spring of 2011, From the Eyes of Hope won best documentary at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth.  Most recently it was screened as part of the Paradigm Film Project during Sundance Film Festival.

While the response to From the Eyes of Hope was great, we know it can't stop there.  This summer Within Broken Borders is heading back to the Middle East and we could not be more excited!  Our team of five will spend four weeks in Israel and Palestine creating a second film.  The story we intend to tell focuses on Palestinian Christians and Messianic Jews, looking at how these two groups play a key role in bringing peace to Israel and Palestine.  Throughout the project we will be partnering with organizations and individuals already established and working towards peace in the Middle East to make this film possible.

In order to make this project possible we need to raise $5,000 by May 2, 2012.  Your support will help cover travel expenses (transportation, food, housing) while abroad.  Additionally, there will be costs to cover in order to make post-production and distribution of the film possible upon our return.  We want to make the film available to as many people as possible and you can be a part of that.  Donate $1 or $500 (every bit helps!) and spread the word!

Visit our website to learn more about us and find resources to learn about the Israel-Palestine conflict.  Watch From the Eyes of Hope.  Read the blog as we prepare and while we are in the Middle East.  Find us on Facebook or Twitter.  Email us with any questions, we would love to hear from you!

We are so thankful for your support!
