Abstract

A television reporter’s experience in the West Bank reveals how children’s hopes and dreams for peace can fly higher than any wall dividing communities and religions. Why won’t Said speak? Why does he make beautiful kites and let them loose in the wind? Following actor Ava Hunt and Director Maggie Ford’s recent visit filming in the West Bank, join us for this new one-woman multimedia performance, bringing this beautiful story alive with laughter, thrills and tears to a land where friendship has no barriers.
