Filmmakers’ Statement On Current Events

From Filmmakers Kirsten Kelly and Katie Taber:

When Transform Films and Odyssey Impact released our recent film, Stranger/Sister in 2020, it was with the goal of amplifying the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom’s powerful work to build relationships across differences in order to combat hate.

At this extreme moment of pain, suffering, violence, mourning and struggle in Israel and Palestine, conversations about justice, peace and moving forward are as complicated as they are urgent.

The bonds of Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom are indeed being tested, but that is why we — as filmmakers and the Sisterhood themselves–all believe that the core values of the movement are even more essential and can provide a model for courage and engagement to communities everywhere.

Please view this featured clip from the film, which highlights the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom’s powerful work around engaging in constructive and intentional dialogue around current events in the Middle East.

For more information on virtual group screenings for your community, organization or house of worship. For more information on our Resource and Discussion Guides to help navigate post-viewing conversations, please visit www.strangersister.com.
