"We believe that the best way to mediate intractable conflicts is through the education of the next generation, and that the best way to reach the next generation is with an Epic, Animated, Musical, Feature Film"


Olive Branch Pictures is a social enterprise engaging in conflict mediation, using multi-narrative, commercially-viable, animated movies with a representational, ideologically balanced production team and advisory board. Our mission is to help mitigate the cycles of hatred, violence, xenophobia, and propaganda resulting from global intractable conflicts. 



Our first production addresses the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict with the story “Shira and Amal”

"An Israeli girl and a Palestinian girl learn to cope with the traumatic loss of their loved-ones by escaping into the world of music. Years later their paths cross in university where, under the mentorship of their professor, they develop an intercultural benefit concert and compose 'A Song of Hope' to bring peace to Jerusalem and to themselves.”
