Beyond Belief Film Synopsis

Beyond Belief documents how Susan Retik and Patti Quigley, young mothers widowed in the terrorist attacks of September 11th, reached out to support widows in Afghanistan who have themselves been afflicted by war and terrorism. It chronicles Susan and Patti's response to the loss of their husbands by choosing to embrace these widows and their families through a sense of shared humanity. Their story challenges us to consider what it means to live in a global community and ask: What kind of world do we live in? And do we want it to be?

I can think of few more appropriate ways to learn about 9/11, focusing not on the horror of the event itself, which may not be the most appropriate approach for young people, but learning about the event more tangentially, through the choices of people who were directly affected by the tragedy.

This film and its study guide will move your students to talk about and understand the history of America and Afghanistan at war, through the lens of war widows, children, and civil society. The message that "this whole world is ours, we are all connected, we are all responsible for making our world better" becomes the message, and the undertaking, of all women survivors.

Yoko Ono writes in response to BEYOND BELIEF:
 
My sisters of widowhood, each one of us has experienced a personal and devestating loss we can never share with anybody. But all of us share the hope for the future. By reaching out to each other, as you have been doing, we are creating a ring around the world of love and understanding. Thank you for your wisdom and courage. We are standing together. When we feel alone, let's remember that and the powerful ring we are creating. I love you!
