Can You Hear Me? Israeli and Palestinian Women Fight for Peace is the first documentary film to explore in depth the role of Israeli and Palestinian women peace activists dealing with one of the world's oldest conflicts. Though prospects for peace have ebbed and flowed between Israelis and Palestinians, women peace activists have worked consistently to bring an end to the bloodshed that has brought so much anguish to both sides. No matter how desperate the political situation seem these women never stop communicating with each other. They come together in their bereavement over the loss of loved ones and to demand a better future for their children and grandchildren. There is bonding, there is friction, there are differences of opinion. But most of all it is a story about women who have hope and keep on trying to hear each other and do not give up their work for peace.
