JCC Jewish & Israeli Film Festival  in partnership with IJCU presents "Under the Same Sun" with introduction by Rev. Dr. Peter Pettit and post-presentation panel discussion moderated by Dr. Pettit.

The film is set in the near future, and it looks back on how peace was made in 2013 between Israel and Palestine. It is the story of two businessmen - one Palestinian and one Israeli - who struggle to set up a solar energy company. Both come from societies where there is strong opposition to cooperating with the other, and the film tells how they overcome hostility from within their own families and from the people around them. In the end, they mount a Facebook campaign that brings popular support both to their joint venture and to the peace process.
