On September 20-25 Rollins College will be hosting the Global Peace Film Festival

If you dont know what the Festival is all about here is some info from the GPFF website:

The Global Peace Film Festival was established to utilize the power of the motion picture to further the goal of peace on earth. With a mission to expand the definition of peace beyond anti-war, ideology, activism or specific causes, the Global Peace Film Festival films and events suggest a more personal message as reflected in the daily lives of individuals and communities the world over.

One of the opening films that seems to be very appealing: Fire In Babylon

This energetic documentary looks back at the legendary West Indies cricket team that rose to prominence in the 1970s and 80s. Led by the dynamic Clive Lloyd, the team used the game of cricket to battle oppressive forces of prejudice on the playing field through superior athleticism and a bold, insuppressible spirit. Amidst the turbulent backdrop of European race riots, South African apartheid and civil unrest in the Caribbean, the West Indian players were thrust into the world"s spotlight as a dynamic force with which to be reckoned.

Come out and see Project

Come out and see Project Happiness playing at the Global Peace Film Festival! It is playing on September 25th at 12:30pm at Rollins College- Bush Auditorium.

Synopsis:

 


From the alleys of Nigeria and the beaches of California to the mountains of India, ordinary young people lead us on an extraordinary journey to explore the nature of lasting happiness and end up starting a movement. The film focuses on four teens from Santa Cruz, California. Each faces personal obstacles to happiness: loss, alienation and the everyday challenges of being a teenager passing into adulthood. Project Happiness introduces them to their peers in Nigeria and India and quickly leaves lectures and books behind. In addition to connecting with each other, the teens engage in conversations with cultural icons George Lucas, Richard Gere and groundbreaking neuroscientist Richard Davidson. At the end of their year together, the three groups converge in Dharamsala, India for a rare private interview with the Dalai Lama—an event that rocks their expectations, brings more questions than answers and marks a new chapter in their lives.

A great film to check out is Tanzania - A Friendship Journey

9/21/11 8:00pm at Rollins College Bush Auditorium or 9/22/11 5:30pm at First Congressional Church of Winter Park

Meet Venance Ndibalema, who was born into poverty in Tanzania but found a way out through a college education in the United States, and Kristen Kenny, an American raised by an upper-middle class family, as they undertake a transformational trip to Venance’s homeland. Their journey takes them from the urban center of Dar es Salaam, to the summit of mighty Mount Kilimanjaro and the sweltering plains of the Serengeti, and finally to the impoverished village where a grandmother waits to see the grandson she thought was lost to her forever. Along the way, cultural differences, disease, and a deadly illness threaten not only our travelers but the life of an innocent child. Two friends, one journey, countless lives changed.

Another Great Film to watch

Another Great Film to watch is INTO ETERNITY

Catch the second screening Sunday september 25th at 3:30 at the Suntrust Auditorium at Rollins College!

This film takes viewers on an underground journey through the tunnels in the bedrock of Finland that were created to house highly radioactive waste isolated from any live organisms. It shows all the complications connected to preparing such an environment.

I have visited the first screening and was amazed, so come out this weekend!
