Hilari Scarl and TL Forsberg were invited to Israel to partake in a special Q&A after our screening

with an audience of Deaf Muslim/Arab children and Israeli Jewish audience members in Jerusalem, a unique opportunity to bring communities together through film.  

SWIS was captioned in both Hebrew and Arabic for the screenings in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
