Most observers consider the Balfour Declaration and Mandate period of the 1920s as the origin of today’s Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Breaking new ground, “1913: Seeds of Conflict,” a one-hour documentary directed by filmmaker Ben Loeterman, explores the divergent social forces growing in Palestine before World War I, when Arabs and Jews coexisted in harmony as Ottomans, each yearning for a land to call their own. Loeterman will lead a discussion and answer questions following the screening.
