In a world increasingly beset with conflicts and the use of violence as the means to resolve these conflicts, Gandhian nonviolence continues to renew and offer relevant and sustainable alternatives. “Beyond Thresholds of Conflict”, an International Film Festival on Peace, brings together path breaking films from around the world, that celebrate women’s immensely significant role in nonviolent conflict resolution in their own diverse, and often complicated contexts within their families, communities and countries.
This two-day film festival is the travelling edition of the Peace Builders International Film Festival held in New Delhi in Oct’16. The festival will showcase documentaries, animation and fiction films that shed light on women as builders and keepers of peace from countries across the world – Sri Lanka, Tibet, India, Iran, Paraguay, Denmark, Pakistan, USA, Indonesia and the Middle East.
You can also catch a conversation “Speaking Peace in Times of War” led by Kirtana Kumar, with an eminent panel including Nandini Sundar, Lata Mani, Laxmi Murthy and Rohini Mohan on Sunday, February 12, at 3:30 PM.
