I was extremely lucky, and honored to have been invited by Michael Mann to be an Assistant Animation Mentor in 'Peace it Together' a workshop where 30 teen-agers from Palestine, Israel, and Canada gathered in Bowen Island, Vancouver to participate in an extraordinary dialogue and filmmaking experience. Based on the successful 2006 program, the youths lived and learned together for three weeks, discovered their personal strengths and created inspiring short films.
Eight films were made: 4 in Documentary, 2 in Drama and 2 in Animation. The films can be seen at http://www.creativepeacenetwork.ca/youth_films.asp
Here are the two animation films- 'Freedom' and 'Listen to This' that were made at the Peace Camp...
