The Shape of the Future from PBC Productions is a groundbreaking documentary that examines the potential for an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement. The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has raged for decades. In this documentary, filmmaker Lynn Allen Scheid addresses the contentious issues at the core of the conflict. The documentary then probes further into these issues using an even-handed approach. The discussion includes the concerns and opinions of Palestinians and Israelis around subjects such as Jerusalem, settlements, Palestinian refugees and security. The film then explores the possibility of a lasting and mutually satisfying peace in the area. The solutions presented by the people on both sides are surprisingly similar. Ultimately the film reveals that a negotiated peace agreement doesn't have to result in trampling the interests or national existence of either side. This film earned international attention when it aired simultaneously in Israel, the Palestinian territories and other Arab nations.
