Director Esther Takac has worked as a trauma psychologist with bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families for nine years in a Jerusalem hospital. In “The Narrow Bridge,” she profiles four individuals—two men and two women, from Israeli and Palestinian families—who have lost a child or parent in the prolonged conflict. Despite considerable political and social resistance, and in the face of unspeakable loss, Bushra, Rai, Meytal, and Bassam work to transform their grief into reconciliation, summoning untold courage to build bridges of friendship that might one day lead to peace. With an inspiring appearance by Leonard Cohen.
