In the summer of 1991, a prominent group of Israelis and Palestinians came together in the small mountain town of Ben Lomond, California to work out and sign a ground breaking peace agreement which became the basis for later formal meetings in Madrid and Oslo. Jerusalem: The Bridge to Peace, an historic one hour documentary from award winning producer Bob Gliner (Schools That Change Communities, Walk the Walk, We’re Still Here) follows the peace makers after their return to Israel and the West Bank to profile their lives living under conflict and find out what happened to the agreement, the challenges it faced, and how these might be overcome. Today, with the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians continuing to rage with seeming no permanent resolution in sight, this historic film offers both great insight into the conflict but above all points the way toward a lasting peace.
