One Day After Peace
After losing her son, David, an Israeli soldier, to a Palestinian sniper, Robi Damelin sets out on an emotional crusade to find answers, reconciliation and peace of mind. She writes a letter to her son’s shooter in hopes that direct contact can lead to healing, understanding and a precedent for future generations. Her concept echoes an experiment created in her native South Africa, where, through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) process, those accused of crimes during the apartheid era were granted amnesty after fully and honestly disclosing the circumstances of their crimes. Displaying skilled documentary technique, directors Miri and Erez Laufer weave the succession of storylines and diverse viewpoints and news footage, while never relying on narrational crutches. As all the implications of TRC unravel, philosophical and psychological elements that both heal and fascinate are debated. Yuval Fichman
