In a world plunging toward ecological and nuclear extinction, can a new story save us?
It did once before. In 1983 the US and USSR were racing toward a nuclear war -- until President Reagan watched the ABC movie “The Day After.” Shaken, like 100 million Americans -- and 200 million Soviets -- he turned from nuclear-war fighting to negotiating treaties reducing nuclear weapons! Listen to our interview with the director of “Television Event” which documents this powerful impact.
In our People-Powered Planet Podcast we also interviewed Nicholas Meyer - who directed the “The Day After” and Star Trek movies -- the most impactful cautionary and visionary movies of all time. What emerged is that scaring us off the doomsday path is just the first step.
To create change we must also inspire people with a vision of a future in which humanity can survive and thrive!
“A roadmap to a better future” is how Martin Sheen introduces our film “The World Is My Country.” Playing on over 100 PBS, it is inspiring people with the intriguing story of how Garry Davis, a song and dance man on Broadway, turned his war guilt over bombing civilians into an electrifying action that galvanized war-weary Europe and sparked a movement. A mighty movement that helped pave the way for universal human rights and a uniting of the nations of Europe - which ended a century of wars between its member states!
Now this film can help inspire the people of the world to do something even grander. Albert Einstein said that Garry grasped the key to whether humanity will “die by its own hand or continue to exist!”
