Film Night: Hotel Everest with Nefesh Kin Claudia Sobral

July 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm PDT

Thursday night July 22, Nefesh gather on Zoom to show the documentary film Hotel Everest by Nefesh Kin Claudia Sobral which centers on a dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians at the Hotel Everest. Israeli and Palestinian peace activists will join us virtually to share about their experiences in the film and beyond.

A RETIRED ISRAELI COLONEL. A PALESTINIAN EDUCATOR.  AN ACTIVIST FROM IDAHO – meet in a designated area of peace. But when the 2014 Gaza War erupts, and extremists on both sides escalate violence, can their ambitions survive?

In Israel and Palestine, the road to peace is a steep climb. How do you overcome decades of fear and bloodshed? How do you combat current events that tear both sides even farther apart? For two activists, one Israeli and one Palestinian, the challenges seem insurmountable, and yet they try to see and understand the humanity in “the other”, forge connections that promote empathy, understanding, and, in their wildest hopes, peace. Hotel Everest is their story.
