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.
