We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting Maayan Schwartz, the award-winning director of Children of Peace, for the UK premiere of his deeply moving documentary about Wahat al-Salam-Neve Shalom, the Village.

This exclusive UK premiere will be at 7 pm on Wednesday 3rd July 2024 at the Soho Hotel in London. The screening will be followed by a live Q&A session with Maayan and his dear friend Shireen Najjar, a Palestinian resident of the Village, who also features in the documentary.

Children of Peace offers a powerful exploration of Wahat al-Salam-Neve Shalom, the only place in the world where Israelis and Palestinians grow up and live together in peace. Director Maayan Schwartz is an Israeli born and raised in this extraordinary community. He is joined by Shireen Najjar, the first Palestinian to be raised in the Village, for a live Q&A following the screening.
