The Celebration of Peace Film Festival uses the power of film to move people beyond their present boundaries to embrace and practice peace in varied and highly personal ways. We bring to you, an exceptional selection of the most lauded, award winning documentaries depicting powerful and compelling stories of peace and conflict resolution around the globe. ThinkGlobal Arts will screen three award-winning films, two documentaries and a musical comedy. Each of these screenings will be followed by a short but stimulating interactive discussion.
Free popcorn and ice cream will be served!
A FORCE MORE POWERFUL
This documentary carefully weaves two separate but related episodes in history, demonstrating how nonviolent power overcame oppression and authoritarian rule. The film journeys through Nashville, Tennessee in the 1960s and ends in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa in the mid-1980s.
WEST BANK STORY
A lively musical comedy set in the fast-paced, fast-food world of competing falafel stands in the West Bank. A little singing, a little dancing, and a lot of hummus helped West Bank Story capture an Academy Award for “Best Live Action Short Film.”
WE SPEAK AS ONE
Five Nobel Laureates share their inspirational vision for peace by addressing pressing global issues on ecology and environment that face today’s young people.
