WATERVILLE — The Maine Film Center will show “Disturbing The Peace” at 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 11 and 12.

“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. The film follows former enemy combatants — Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison — who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.”

The film reveals their transformational journeys from soldiers committed to armed battle to nonviolent peace activists, leading to the creation of Combatants for Peace. While based in the Middle East, the film evokes universal themes relevant to us all and inspires us to become active participants in the creation of our world. The movie is unrated and is 82 minutes long.

Individual tickets to Cinema Explorations screenings cost $8; festival passes (each pass admits one to all six films) cost $30. Railroad Square Cinema punch cards, complimentary tickets, and Maine Film Center membership benefits may also be used.
