Rooted in Peace

Offi­cial Selec­tion of Sedona Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val and Mass­a­chu­setts Mul­ti­cul­tur­al Film Fes­ti­val

Root­ed In Peace (direct­ed by Greg Reit­man) chal­lenges view­ers to exam­ine their val­ues as Amer­i­cans and human beings. The film makes the case that today we are at war with­in our­selves, with our envi­ron­ment, and with the world. View­ers are encour­aged to take notice of the world we live in, proac­tive­ly seek ways to find per­son­al and eco­log­i­cal peace, and stop the cycle of vio­lence. The film fea­tures inter­views with many lumi­nar­ies and activists, includ­ing Deep­ak Chopra and Arch­bish­op Desmond Tutu. The director’s view is that if the for­est is to be green, every tree must be green; if there’s going to be peace on earth, then every­body needs to expe­ri­ence peace with­in them­selves. The fun­da­men­tal ques­tion is: How do we want to live? Reitman’s jour­ney of trans­for­ma­tion shows how one per­son can learn to make the nec­es­sary changes to enjoy a bet­ter life — and in so doing inspire oth­ers to want to improve their own lives, as well as soci­ety as a whole.
