Claude Roshem-Smith's film is an inspiring portrait of the Melkite priest, author, educator, and social activist who has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize three times. Well-spoken and pragmatic, Chacour fully understands the injustices of history but refuses to be hobbled by the past. He's also wily and hard-headed enough to have circumvented Israeli authorities and built a first-rate high school that successfully integrates Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Druze; more than all the summits, accords, and road maps combined, it may offer the best prospect for peace in a divided land. In French with subtitles. (2003). 55 min.
