Rooted in Peace

Sat, Sep 30 - 10:30 A

In celebration of the upcoming International Day of Peace, September 21st, we are hosting Greg Reitman’s ROOTED in PEACE - a globally transformative, socially-conscious, environmentally-based film. Reitman’s journey of self-analysis resonates with audiences seeking inner peace in a world full of people dominated by war, affected by global warming or haunted by inner conflict. The film follows him as he speaks to thought leaders around the world having conversations around sustainable development, discussing the challenges of our never-ending wars, and facing the realities of uncertainty placed on the world’s institutions by our current political climate. Reitman’s introspective and socially relevant documentary was most recently screened at the United Nations.

From the US to Costa Rica to India, award-winning filmmaker and environmental activist Greg Reitman traveled around the world to visit such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra; music legends Donovan, Mike Love, and Pete Seeger; film director David Lynch; Nobel Peace Laureates Mairead Maguire and Archbishop Desmond Tutu; media mogul Ted Turner, many others. Together, they seek inner peace in a world full of people dominated by war, affected by global warming, and haunted by inner conflict.
