Thursday 3 September 2009, 7.00 pm :. Film screening: 'The Day After Peace'

At RMIT bldg 50, Orr St (off Victoria St), Carlton

Join us in September for a screening of 'The Day After Peace', in support of Peace One Day, and to tie in with Peace Day (which actually falls on 21 September, but we're getting in early!)

"The Day After Peace charts the remarkable 10-year journey of award-winning filmmaker Jeremy Gilley to establish an annual Peace Day on 21 September. The camera follows Jeremy as he galvanises the countries of the world to recognise an official day of ceasefire and non-violence.

But even after the member states of the UN unanimously adopt Peace Day, the struggle isn’t over. As the years pass, there’s not a single ceasefire. The voices of the cynics are growing louder – and now Gilley’s non-profit organisation, Peace One Day, is in dire financial straits. But he can’t let it fail.

The film’s breathtaking conclusion finds Gilley joined by Jude Law in Afghanistan attempting to spearhead a massive vaccination against polio on Peace Day. Will peace prevail? Will lives be saved? Or were the cynics right?

The Day After Peace is a moving testament to the power of the individual and the perseverance of the human spirit."
