The shape of the future

The Shape of the Future is a documentary series that explores what an eventual Palestinian-Israeli peace settlement might look like. It even-handedly examines the aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians and demonstrates the possibility of a lasting, mutually satisfactory peace. It made headlines when it was aired simultaneously in Israel, the Palestinian territories and other Arab countries.
The Shape of the Future takes a look at opinions on both sides of the conflict, and discovers a surprisingly similar set of solutions proposed by the people most affected by the conflict. The film is unique in that it looks ahead in a positive direction, rather than focusing on the negative events of the past. Originally broadcast in Hebrew and Arabic on Israeli and Palestinian television, The Shape of the Future is enjoying widespread international distribution.
