We all love a good superhero movie, but if you're looking for thought-provoking entertainment that gives insight into how to be a superhero in your own community, the Peace on Earth Film Festival is your best bet. The three day event showcases films about social justice and human rights with the aim of advancing world peace. This year's opening night films address prison reform with "Beyond the Wall", a behind-the-scenes documentary and a drama by award-winning director John Hancock starring Nick Nolte. Other notable films include Sharon Stone's conversation with Skokie resident and Holocaust survivor Sam Harris and a documentary about the Onondaga Nation waging a battle with the U.S. government for its land in central New York.
