In the film, Two-Sided Story, Emmy award director--Tor Ben Mayor--follows a group of 27 Palestinians and Israelis who meet through a unique project called “History through the Human Eye” led by The Parents Circle-Families Forum –bereaved Palestinian and Israelis for Peace and Reconciliation. The project’s goal is to acknowledge the narrative of the other. The group includes over 600 bereaved families--Orthodox Jews, religious Muslims, settlers, ex-soldiers in the Israeli army, ex-security prisoners, citizens of the Gaza strip, kibbutz members, second-generation holocaust survivors, nonviolent activists and more. Each and every one holds his/her own historical truth and carries her/his own emotional baggage.
