Way back at the beginning of our journey, every member state of the United Nations unanimously adopted a global day of Peace. My film – The Day After Peace – encompassing the passing of the resolution and the impact it had around the world up until 2007. My ultimate aim is to show my film in every UN member state – 192 in total. That’s a lot of countries. But, then again, the film has been sold internationally for TV in 91 countries so far and has been screened at 70 international film festivals. Not only that, but as part of our 192 and Beyond campaign, the film will be screened in 173 countries so far, and we hope to confirm the remaining 19 in the coming weeks.
And you can get involved. It doesn’t matter where the film is screened; whether it’s a school, a sitting room or a cinema. I firmly believe that film is the best tool we have to inform and inspire everyone the world to do something for Peace Day. Screening a film is a simple thing but it is an immensely significant gesture. Why not invite some of your friends round to watch it on Peace Day? Just by screening the film – and passing on our message – you are making the biggest difference of all; informing your friends and loved ones of what we’re all about and encouraging them to make a commitment for peace day.
Enjoy the film – by watching together there will be peace one day.
