Filmed over three tumultuous years in India, Pakistan, Japan and the USA - WAR & PEACE is an epic documentary journey of peace activism in the face of global militarism and war. Triggered by macabre scenes of jubilation that greeted nuclear testing in the Indian sub-continent, WAR & PEACE is dramatically framed by the murder of Mahatma Gandhi. Fifty years after his death memories of Gandhi seem like a mirage that never was, created by our thirst for peace and our very distance from it.

"The film itself is a tour de force, beautifully shot and often darkly funny and much more riveting than the dry subject matter might suggest." Duncan Campbell, The Guardian, UK

"War and Peace" has a riveting intelligence all its own and earns its epic title. Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times
