Monday 17th : Film : The Day After Peace

With our Special Guest Jeremy Gilley via Skype
and a video-introduction by Art Malik

Venue : Streatham Odeon

Time: 7pm

Entry: FREE


A big hit last year, we are once again screening this award-winning film featuring Jude Law and Angelina Jolie.

The film will be video-introduced by actor & South London resident Art Malik, well known for his roles in A Passage to India, The Bond Film The Living Daylights, Upstairs Downstairs, and Holby City. Art undertook a major role in fundraising for relief work for victims of the Gujarat earthquake in 2001, and also appeared on the DEC Pakistan Floods Appeal advertisement in 2010.

The Day After Peace charts the remarkable 10-year journey of award-winning filmmaker Jeremy Gilley to establish an annual Peace Day on 21 September.

The camera follows Gilley as he galvanises the countries of the world to recognise an official day of ceasefire and non-violence. But even after the member states of the UN unanimously adopt Peace Day, the struggle isn’t over. As the years pass, there’s not a single ceasefire. The voices of the cynics are growing louder – and now Gilley’s non-profit organisation, Peace One Day, is in dire financial straits. But he can’t let it fail.

The film’s breathtaking conclusion finds Gilley joined by Jude Law in Afghanistan, attempting to spearhead a massive vaccination against polio on Peace Day. Will peace prevail? Will lives be saved? Or were the cynics right? The Day After Peace is a moving testament to the power of an individual and the perseverance of the human spirit.

The film will be followed by a live Skype link-up with Jeremy Gilley, Founder and CEO of global movement Peace One Day. Do not miss this opportunity to ask him a question about his tireless quest to bring a day of peace to the world.
