Film and discussion examine women's peace movement

March 22, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Israeli filmmaker Shuli Eshel will introduce, screen and lead a discussion about her documentary films on the women's peace movement in the Middle East.

Sponsored by Kalamazoo and WMU Hillel, the program will be held in the Little Theatre Sunday, April 7, beginning at 5 p.m. Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Eshel examines the Middle East women's peace movement through personal profiles of six women, three Israeli and three Palestinian, who have been leaders in the peace movement. Skillfully weaving the personal and public events of the six women's lives, Eshel has them reveal the dynamics that placed them in the forefront of the women's peace movement.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver St. on the WMU East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre.
