peace one day
PEACE ONE DAY is the story of one man's attempts to persuade the global community via the United Nations to officially sanction a global ceasefire day; a day of non-violence and peace worldwide. This documentary charts the remarkable 5-year journey of filmmaker Jeremy Gilley as he meets heads of state, Noble Peace Laureates, aid agencies, freedom fighters, media moguls, the innocent victims of war and, eventually, everyone who was anyone at the UN. An individual genuinely can make a difference: On September 7th, 2001 the United Nations voted for a UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the calendar on September 21st annually. On the early morning of September 11th Jeremy was at the UN in New York waiting for Secretary-General Kofi Annan to ring the Peace bells and announce the creation of this Day to the world's media. Then the planes hit the Twin Towers…. Now, more than ever, we need PEACE ONE DAY. Since 9/11 Gilley perseveres tirelessly to make September 21st each year an even bigger event throughout the world.
