The last time I followed up with Stefan Cristoff was at the  CinemaPolitica’s screening of the documentary : Israel vs Israel.  The documentary follows ” One grandmother, one rabbi, one anarchist and one ex-soldier – four Israelis trying to put an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories. The documentary Israel vs Israel is a film about Jewish peace activists who in both words and actions take a stand again 40 years of occupation and illegal settlements.”
