The One Wish Project is a series of short documentary pieces that expose the human layer beneath intractable conflicts. Joseph Shamash, Andrew Lustig and Jeff Handel began the project with One Wish Jerusalem. Shot in one day, over 140,000 people watched the film. We were covered by Haaretz, Huffington Post and more. We've just completed our second film, One Wish for Iran, love Israel, and are planning to create 6-8 more with additional educational curriculum for conflict resolution.
With your help, we can create conversations between people at odds, and create new headlines.
What We Need & What You Get
We are so excited that you’re here, looking at our IndieGoGo campaign. We know that you want your money to be put to good use and so we want to tell you a bit about ‘how’ we will make use of your contributions.
We need $50,000 to fund 6-8 more videos, while also building the educational components to all the films. Funds will be spent on production costs, and turning our 'One Wish' into an organized peace machine.
We have some great perks lined up, including hand written, scented notes by our team. Don't miss out on the opportunity to have dinner with Jeff, Joseph and Andrew.
Funds will go to funding more videos and building our educational content for schools around the world.
10% of the funding raised will go to an organization dedicated to bringing peace to both Israelis and Palestinians in the Holy Land.
Our first film was seen by more than 140,000 people. Everyone we met while filming our second one, One Wish for Iran, Love Israel told us how happy they were to participate, and how much it meant for them to be able to talk to the 'other side.'
However, the real change will come with the development of educational content devoted to conflict resolution and showing an alternative view of daily life in the Holy Land by amplifying the voices of people on the ground.
