Peace Film Screening at Unity
Rooted in Peace, the official selection finalist for the United Nations best feature documentary, will be shown at 7 p.m., November 17, at Unity of Mesa Sanctuary. The film challenges viewers to examine their values as Americans and human beings. Director and award-winning filmmaker Greg Reitman says, “Today we are at war within ourselves, with our environment and with the world.” He invites viewers on a film journey 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 Deepak Chopra, Donovan Leitch, Mike Love, Pete Seeger, David Lynch, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many others. Reitman learns from all of them, and heeds Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s words, “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 that quality of peace within themselves.”
Admission is $10 at the door. Location: 2700 E. Southern Ave., Mesa. For more information, call 480-892-2700 or visit UnityOfMesa.org.
