This years festival is going to jam packed with amazing films!! Make sure you come check out “Haiti: Land of Hope” directed by Asier Reino.

This documentary is based in a journalist’s personal experience who, after traveling to Haiti in 2004, decides to erase this country from his memory after having witnessed terrible violence.

Now in 2010, after the earthquake he decides to go back and observe the damage. Although the quake destroyed so many things, it may have helped the country in other ways.

Come see the film Wednesday September 19 @ 7:30PM at WPP
& Thursday September 20 @ 6PM at WPL

This film is paired with a short film “Water For Life”.

“The film is as much a historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid, as it is a film about why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them.”

Roadmap to Apartheid is a definitive documentary comparing and contrasting South African Apartheid with Israeli policies and practices. This documentary shows us why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today and how this problem should be addressed worldwide. Come over today to the start of the Global Peace Film Festival 2012 at Rollins College, this event will run until Sunday the 23rd of September.

Roadmap to apartheid will be shown at: 330 Winter Park Plaza, Rollins College on Saturday 22nd September

Also check out “After the Factory.” The film gives a look into the lives of the people living in the devastated industrial towns of Detroit, Michigan and Lodz, Poland. It shows the effects of the fallen economy on these two cities, but goes beyond the usual representation of homelessness, poverty, and crime. Its point of focus is the recovery of these cities and how their communities are tackling these problems and making a difference. Shown at 6 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College and at 6 pm Thursday, Sept. 20 at Cobb Plaza Cinema Cafe in downtown Orlando.

“How can a little girl’s life be changed if she is given easy access to clean water? For most of us, fresh water is a tap away. For others, it’s an arduous daily journey. For every human, water is life”. This must-see short film by director Shawn Small documents the difficult journey Sudanese people must take to obtain a natural necessity in life that many of us take for granted: the essential need for water.

The film has two showings:
Wednesday, September 19th @ 7:30 PM -330 Winter Park Plaza

AND

Thursday, September 20th, 6:00 PM -Winter Park Public Library

The Global Peace Film Festival is showing a movie titled “The List”. The movie is about a man named Kirk Johnson and his efforts to aid Iraqis that are being harmed by radical militants. His efforts started after he returned home from Iraq and found out that many of his former Co-workers had been killed or were missing because they were considered traitors for working with the U.S. Come see this touching movie that spans over four years, showing Johnson’s efforts and the stories of the people he has helped!

The film is showing Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 3:30pm at the Cobb located at 155 S. Orange Ave., Orlando, Florida.

GO SEE!!!
PARTY CRASHERS!
GLOBAL PEACE FILM FESTIVAL!!
An engaging look at the grass-roots movement that indelibly changed the landscape of American conservatism, Party Crashers offers a clear and balanced chronicle of the rise of The Tea Party. Founding members recount the movement’s beginnings and how the resonance of a viral video and the power of social media led to the explosive growth of the first conservative protest movement of the internet age. The film also takes an in-depth look at the criticisms and controversies surrounding the movement. Hear from Sen. Rand Paul, Sharron Angle, Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, the late Andrew Breitbart, Stephen Baldwin, authors Prof. Christopher Parker and Prof. Thaddeus Russell among others.

Want a story that truly touches your heart with its kind message about acceptance and realizing what you had exactly?
Out of Step is a story about a father who ultimately discovers the truth about his daughter, after she has passed away, but does not want to accept it. After befriending someone he comes to accept who his daughter was. The Global Peace Film Festival is giving people the opportunity to discover this story.

TOMORROW! At the Sun Trust Auditorium at 5:00 pm

Be there to discover how this whole story takes place.
