Featuring a post-film Skype Q&A with director Greg Reitman!
“The new documentary Rooted in Peace challenges viewers to examine their values as Americans and human beings. Today we are at war within ourselves, with our environment, and with the world.
Award-winning director and producer Greg Reitman (Fuel) 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 relies not only on memoir, but also on interviews with such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love and Pete Seeger, filmmaker David Lynch, Noble Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, media mogul Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, green architect William McDonough, neuroscientist Dan Siegel and many others. Reitman learns from all of them, and heeds Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s words, that if the forest is to be green, every tree must be green; if there’s going to be peace on earth, then everyone needs to experience that quality of peace within themselves. In asking viewers to do the same, Reitman poses the basic question: How do we want to live? Reitman’s journey is an example of transformation – how one person can learn to make the necessary changes to enjoy a better life – and in so doing inspire others to want to improve their own lives, and society as a whole. (Dir. by Greg Reitman, 2016, USA, 97 mins., Not Rated)”
