Nonviolent Peaceforce says
Presented in partnership with the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul and Minnesota International NGO Network.

A riveting 86-minute feature documentary film that makes the case for unarmed civilian peacemaking and mediation as a response to violent international conflict. We follow four Canadian peacemakers as they take us inside the drama of their work in some of the world’s hottest conflict zones: land disputes in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the civil war in South Sudan, IDP camps with displaced minorities in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq, and stories of mediation in Darfur, Nepal, and Aceh. As we follow our protagonists, we share their challenges and their hopes as they work to create alternative responses to war and violence.

The film highlights the Nonviolent Peaceforce, who has a local office in St. Paul and was nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. Learn more at http://nonviolentpeaceforce.org.
