Video transcript

What has been told to me when I tell people that I'm going to Bethlehem and visiting Palestine and Israel, they say: "Aren't you scared like, there's terrorists there. there's scary things happening." But then I get here and I meet all these beautiful, kind, welcoming people more than in America. There's a lot of people don't know. And it's important to let the fear go and actually talk with people and make friends and build relationships and listen to their stories, listen to what's going on, listen to their pain listen to their joy and share with each other, 'cause that's the only way that we actually understand the truth and that's the only way that we will be able to create change and bring peace.

Director's note

Alize explain something that has been my experience for a lot of encounters that I had:
I come to a meeting with a preconceived idea of how this person will be like. And then I talk to him/her, listen to his/her stories and then all that I thought I know don't fit in. That is the power of discovering the other.
