Introducing Bullfrog Communities

Welcome to Bullfrog Communities

We aim to energize change, and to help local activists broaden their reach.

    • We provide powerful films and all the support materials you need to create an effective community event.
    • We will send out strategic petitions, asking you to sign and send them on to your network, using the power of this medium on behalf of the people and the earth. These will be either national in scope — asking you to join an uproar of opinion, or very local — asking you to add your voice to attain a specific victory, which may provide a watershed — changing the mindset of the people empowered in a community, of multinational corporations' assumptions as to what they can get away with, and of politicians who notice the change in the wind.

    • We will provide a forum for sharing ideas that work and news that can inform action on an issue. We ask for your discussion, suggestions, feedback, and reports of successes in your community.

Please join. Let's see what we can accomplish together.

Combatants for Peace is a bi-national movement of Palestinians and Israelis who actively participated in the cycle of violence in the region, but have since chosen the path of nonviolence in promoting peace and co-existence. The movement holds nonviolent protests, educational tours of the occupied territories, in-house meetings, “learning peace” lectures, and meetings of activists in Israel and in Palestine. Combatants for Peace strives for the end of the occupation and opposes any form of violence on either side, calling for the recognition of a dialogue between partners.

DISTURBING THE PEACE is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities.




"Vital, absorbing...inspiring portrait."
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

"This fresh and intimate documentary by a first-time director and his veteran partner has changed the world I know. Some stories we inherit.  Some stories we invent ourselves.  We live in these stories.  Change those stories and we change our world."
Ben Cheever, Roger Ebert Film Festival

“I want to live in the world you guys are creating.”
Michael Moore

"A tremendous achievement - a stirring and profound film that chronicles the noble efforts of Israelis and Palestinians to realize their common humanity, to break the horrendous cycle of violence and move toward peace. We, people of every nationality, need to see it, think about the individuals who expose themselves to us, and be drawn into the indispensable process of wrestling with our own vengefulness in order to transcend our lesser selves."
Todd Gitlin, Professor of Journalism and Sociology, Columbia University

"Critics' Pick...Their stories are compelling and persuasive..."
Andy Webster, The New York Times

"A deeply-moving, powerful film with an inspiring message...The film offers us a glimmer of hope at time when the prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace look so bleak. This is essential viewing for educators, activists, and anyone concerned about this tragic conflict."
Dov Waxman, Professor of Political Science, International Affairs, & Israel Studies, Co-Director of Middle East Center, Northeastern University, Author, Trouble in the Tribe: The American Jewish Conflict over Israel

"The film is a space for listening, for trying to understand."
Diana Clarke, The Village Voice

"By focusing on combatants from both sides who came together to bring about change, Disturbing the Peace is a rejoinder to pessimism, delivering a message of hope..."
Stephen Mayne, Under the Radar

"A moving documentary...potent and earnest."
Chris Barsanti, Film Journal International

"A fresh and thoughtful look at a conflict few of us fully understand...This is essential viewing for anyone wanting to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from a human perspective, but also as a testament to the human capacity to forgive and the need for empathy."
Alan Berry, Critical Movie Critics
