refusing to be enemies World Premiere was a sell-out community celebration at Ann Arbor's historic Michigan Theater in March 2007. Since then, word of mouth has prompted interest from all over the country. Screenings have happened as far east as Washington DC, as far west as Rapid City, South Dakota, and in Israel as well. White and some Zeitouna sisters have responded to invitations to appear with screenings at conferences, on college campuses, at museums, at high schools and in numerous community venues.
