The National Archives at Kansas City, in collaboration with a group of Kansas City organizations and civic leaders, have united to bring a thought-provoking film and panel discussion to the region. The film will be shown at 7 p.m. Feb. 7, at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Helzberg Hall, Kansas City.

Disturbing the Peace follows former enemy combatants – Israeli soldiers from elite units and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison. Following the screening, the film’s directors, producers and cinematographer, along with members of Combatants for Peace (featured in the film), will take the stage for a panel discussion. Tickets for the event are $20 and can be purchased through the Kauffman Center at

In addition, on Feb. 9 at 1:30 p.m., the panelists will come together again for a free program about creating peace out of conflict at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City. The conversation will feature clips from Disturbing the Peace. While this event is free and open to the public, registration is requested at
