The Narrow Bridge

Join us to screen The Narrow Bridge–lights a way to personal and social change.

Thursday, February 23, 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join us for The Best of Fest at the Osher Marin JCC, featuring three must-see films from The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.

From conflict to understanding, from trauma to hope, these families are transforming their searing pain into a bridge to reconciliation.

After suffering searing pain, four people develop inner strengths they never imagined they had. We watch with deep respect as Bushra, Rami, Meytal and Bassam, women and men who lost a child or parent in violent conflict, transform their grief into a bridge to reconciliation in this harrowing nut upfilting tale.

This powerful and moving documentary follows their paths from devastating trauma to courageous activism. But their stories are not just personal. They all belong to the grassroots movement Israeli Palestinian Bereaved Families whose participants stand side-by-side to end the violence and build a future based on dignity and equality.

Despite fierce political and family opposition, they refuse to give up. While these men and women all wish they could turn back the clock to before tragedy struck, they would never change who they have become.

Their many activities include talks to Israeli and Palestinian high school students, workshops for bereaved adults, women’s parallel narrative groups and an annual Memorial for Victims of Conflict where the suffering on both sides is witnessed.

Charting a journey of hope amidst pain, The Narrow Bridge lights a way to personal and social change.
