Partner with the Enemy

This soulful documentary beautifully captures the human cost of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Kibbutznik Anat Shelach and Ramallah resident Rola Srouji meet through their work for competing logistics companies. Fueled by Rola’s enthusiasm, the women decide to join forces and start a business called Unlimited Logistics Company (ULL), specializing in releasing and transporting Palestinian cargo shipped to Israeli ports. Partner with the Enemy rides on Anat and Rola’s charm -- you root for their success, even as their hostile environments threaten to shatter their dreams. The film is full of quietly moving scenes: Rola’s sons marveling at the Edenic lushness and freedom of Kibbutz Mizra, Anat’s speech at the company’s one-year anniversary in which she tells the women’s Arab clients.

It Happened Here

A compelling film from director Lisa F. Jackson and producer Marjorie Schwartz Nielsen, this documentary explores sexual assault on campuses through the personal testimonials of five survivors who transform their experiences into a springboard for change. In raw and intimate interviews, the students describe surviving sexual assault only to be met with apathy, disbelief, blame and retaliation from the authorities when they tried to report the crime. When they tried to get justice, they were ignored, belittled and shamed, while their attackers remained on campus with impunity.
