my so-called enemy

Spanning seven years, the award-winning My So-Called Enemy follows six Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls who participated in a cross-cultural leadership program. The film documents how the transformative experience of knowing their "enemies" as human beings meets with the realities of their lives back home in the Middle East. Through their coming-of-age narratives, audiences see how creating relationships across emotional, ideological, religious and physical borders are first steps towards resolving conflict.
