"One Story, One Film, Many Changes." Julia Bacha

"Parents can incentivize or disincentivize behavior simply by giving or withdrawing attention to their children. But that's true for adults too. In fact, the behavior of entire communities and countries can be influenced, depending on where the international community chooses to focus its attention." Julia Bacha: 'Pay Attention to Nonviolence' (July 2011)

Julia Bacha is the Media Director at Just Vision, an organization that uses film and storytelling to "Increase the power and legitimacy of Palestinians and Israelis working for nonviolent solutions to the conflict." She talks about her film Budrus (2009) at TEDXRamallah (May 2011), a documentary about 'a West Bank village, a giant barrier and nonviolent resistance.' She also talks on the points of Cognitive Dissonance, Confirmation Bias and Functional Behavior.
