Tackling Peace

It began as a crazy dream of Tanya Oziel, an Australian mum passionate for Australian football and Middle East peace. This dynamic woman inspires a rag tag group of Israeli and Palestinian men, who have never even heard of the game, to compete on the same team for the “footy” world cup. Narrated by Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, Captain America), this intimate, behind-the-scenes story follows the young men as they try to set aside a lifetime of prejudice and hatred in their remarkable quest to show the world a picture of cooperation across the divide of politics and war. http://washingtondcjcc.org/center-for-arts/film/WJFF/2011-film-pages/my-champion-tackling-peace.html
