Soldiers of Peace Narrated by Hollywood actor and United Nations Messenger for Peace Michael Douglas gives us an uplifting look at the current geopolitical state of the world: contrary to popular belief, there are actually less armed conflicts in the world today and less people dying of violent deaths than ever before.
The world is changing fast and humankind is being confronted with rapid climate change, a probable oil crash and an ever-growing population. This documentary closely examines the different ways in which governments and individuals can face these problems: they can deal with them through war or peace. There is a genuine wave occurring in all corners of the world right now, showing us that peace is not a utopia, but rather at arm¹s length.
Through numerous and beautiful examples, the film illustrates the many ways in which people and communities are making a positive change, today. Even though we may instinctively know that this change is greatly needed to survive this 21st century, to see it unfold is truly exciting. Featuring Sir Richard Branson, Prince Hassan of Jordan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Sir Bob Geldof, Hans Blix. And featuring the 'Soldiers of Peace' in Colombia, Ireland, England, Liberia, Nigeria, USA, and Kenya.
