Broken Wings Peace Documentary
Hi everyone – My name is Sima Galanti. I’m a singer-songwriter, actress, and aspiring documentary filmmaker who was born and raised in Israel. I followed my heart to the U.S. in pursuit of my musical dreams – and for hope, inspiration and deeper meaning in my life.
Since the age of 10, I knew that music was my calling. Pursuit of musical goals has taken me on incredible journeys to find my voice and myself. It’s given me the strength to become the artist and the woman I’ve always dreamt of becoming.
I’m currently working on a very special project and am excited to tell you about it. It all started when I wrote a song called “Broken Wings.” I wrote this song to bridge the gap between Israelis and Palestinians and to bring hope and inspiration to the new generation.
While seeking out a Palestinian artist to collaborate with me on “Broken Wings,” I decided to also create a documentary. I was facing so many obstacles in the process of making the song happen in the midst of a never-ending conflict between warring countries promoting hate, fear and instilling a radical belief system of ignorance.
I felt an undeniable sense of commitment to something so deep that was rising from the depth of my soul. I believed it was my duty as an artist, a human and a spiritual being to educate, inspire, and spread healing and a positive message in order to uplift people to a beautiful place of love.
This documentary will show how growing up in an environment of hate, fear and distrust can affect a person’s life, especially as a young child. You’ll also discover humanity, compassion, love, fear, the overcoming of life’s obstacles, and the exploration of radical belief systems that separate humanity as a whole. The crisis in the Middle East affects everyone’s lives and has a domino effect on all of us.
The film will raise questions regarding music and its place in healing the world, as well as healing our individual lives and pasts.
Recording of the soundtrack for the documentary has already begun, as has shooting of the film both within Los Angeles and on location in Israel and the West Bank. But now is where you come in.
As you can imagine, film and music production is very costly. This inspirational story is worthy of being told, and yet the funds to complete it properly are out of reach of just one individual as an independent project. To finish it, I need your help!
The money that you donate will go to things such as:
· Production team
· Camera crews
· Lighting & sound
· Color correction
· Music recording/mixing/mastering/distribution
· Photography & artwork
· Marketing & promotion
· Indiegogo fees & donor rewards
I can’t wait to share the important “Broken Wings” message with all of you. Thank you so much for your love and support.
I wanted to share this wonderful article by Mike Cohen from the Jewish Telegraph. The article talks about my life story, music and my peace documentary called 'Broken Wings'.
I wanted to take a min and thank all of you for your support in my visions and for believing in the power of love, peace, music, healing and bridging gaps through positive dialogue. I'm grateful for your kind donations, which brought this project from a vision into reality.
As I'm moving forward with the editing process, feel free to share the campaign with others and if you can contribute and support the film editing process, please do so. YOUR support and contributions are much appreciated. I couldn't do it with out YOU.
Have a blessed weekend.
It's been the most inspiring, challenging, heart and eye opening two years. A rollercoaster of emotions that range from pain, joy, excitement. I've experienced heartbreaks, healing, facing reality, learning, over coming past experiences and circumstances, my fears, falling on my face many times but still believing in my vision. I'm excited to announce that I'm ready to start the raw editing for my peace documentary "Broken Wings".
When I wrote the song "Broken Wings" two years ago at the time of the Gaza war, I never thought that it will lead to such a powerful journey, a rebirth and a birth of such a powerful peace documentary.
I wanted to thank all of you for your support of my creative journey, my music, my visions and dreams, no matter how big or small. Your support means the world to me, as it truly matters for someone like me who left home at such a young age and was able to create a home everywhere I went thanks for your friendships, acceptance, love, respect and support.
Please continue your generous contribution and support into the editing process, so I can put together and deliver the most inspiring film.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
I wanted to share great news with you all! I'm traveling to Israel this coming Thursday to interview and record with Kobi Farhi, the lead singer of the Israeli metal band Orphaned Land for my peace documentary, "Broken Wings". I'm excited and honored to be working with Kobi. And I'm grateful to be able to team up with fellow Israeli artist on such an amazing cause for peace, unity, coexistence and healing through music.
For the last 20 years Orphaned Land has promoted a message of peace and unity, through their music and lyrics, particularly between the three main Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Islam, and Christianity). They've also influenced so many people in and outside the country's borders and broken down barriers between the Arab and the Israeli/jewish communities. The band is committed to inviting the Arab world to listen to their music in spite of resistance and outright bans from Arab League. So it is only natural that Orphaned Land and Kobi will be a part of "Broken Wings", which will further the message of unity in the middle east and around the world.
My hope is that "Broken Wings" will help in taking another step towards unity, peace, and coexistence. Broken Wings explore's people's lives through their life stories, music, commitment to make a different in the world with compassion, and loving heart.
The band recently released an amazing new single called "Like Orpheus" feat. Hansi Kürsch. Here's a link to the music video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hurWzo01FpM&feature=youtu.be
Please share the video, it's message, and this amazing band. Also check out the "Broken Wings" documentary teaser and share our mission of unity and peace in the Middle East and around the world.
May peace, love, light and music guide us to a better future and into a better world for our children and future generations to come.
Love you all
