Encounter Point moves beyond sensational and canned images to tell the story of an Israeli settler, a Palestinian ex-prisoner, a bereaved Israeli mother and a wounded Palestinian bereaved brother who sacrifice their safety, public standing and homes in order to press for a grassroots movement for nonviolence and peace.

“Deftly avoids schmaltz in its delineation of grief and its celebration of cross-cultural activism.”
Variety

“Assured, thoughtful and clear-eyed… nonviolent resistance could happen here. This film may prompt others to take up the cause.”
The New York Times
