“My So-Called Enemy,” directed by Lisa Gossels, uses the Israeli/Palestinian conflict as a lens for building multi-cultural understanding and offers a model for conflict prevention and resolution.

Spanning seven years, the film follows a group of Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls committed to mutual understanding after participating in the women’s leadership program Building Bridges for Peace. It documents how knowing their “enemies” as human beings in the United States clashes with the realities of their lives back home in the Middle East.

A discussion panel will follow the film, featuring:

  • Lisa Gossels, Emmy-winning director
  • Yasmine Kalkstein, associate professor of psychology at the Mount
  • Orin Strauchler, assistant dean of Student Support Services and director of counseling at the Mount

The panel will be moderated by the Mount’s Dean Goldberg, associate professor of communication arts and film studies.

The event is sponsored by Mount Saint Mary College’s Division of Arts & Letters, the Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center, and The Catholic and Dominican Institute. This event has been approved for College Life FYE credit, but students at all levels are welcome. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there! red puzzle piece on white background with MSMC in blue
