My So-Called Enemy follows six Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls committed to justice and mutual understanding after participating in a women’s leadership program called Building Bridges for Peace. This heart and mind-opening film, from Emmy® Award-winning director Lisa Gossels (The Children of Chabannes), documents how the young women’s transformative experience of knowing their “enemies” as human beings in the United States meets with the realities of their lives back home in the Middle East over the next seven years. 

Through the coming-of-age narratives of Adi, Gal, Hanin, Inas, Rawan and Rezan, we see how creating relationships across personal, political, and physical borders is a first step towards resolving conflict. My So-Called Enemy presents the complexities of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through a human lens – and the possibility and hope that come from listening to each other’s stories.
