Peace One Day [DVD] [2003]

The epic quest of a concerned peace activist seeking to convince the United Nations of sanctioning an official day of global cease fire is profiled in this documentary showcasing filmmaker Jeremy Gilley's efforts to open a constructive dialogue on the merits of peace. Over the course of five long years, Gilley would meet heads of state, freedom fighters, Noble Peace Laureates, media moguls, and anyone at the U.N. willing to consider his proposal to discuss the prospect of eschewing all forms of violence for a scant 24 hours, once every 365 days. Though his tireless worldly travels eventually resulted in U.N. member states adopting a worldwide day of cease fire fixed on September 21, tragedy intervened when, on the very morning Gilley was in New York City awaiting Secretary General Kofi Annan's official announcement of the global cease fire day, two terrorist hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center and the press announcement that was to be held that morning was abruptly canceled. Gilley still hadn't given up his dream though, and now viewers can find out just how much positive impact one person can make when they truly put their mind to it.
