Description

The Sedona International Film Festival, Sedona International City of Peace, NAMI and the Mental Health Coalition of the Verde Valley are proud to join 100 cities around the country for “One Night For Peace” with the premiere of “We Are Many” at 4 and 7 pm at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.


On February 15, 2003, up to 30 million people, many of whom had never demonstrated before, came out in nearly 800 cities around the world to protest against the impending Iraq War. “We Are Many” is the never-before-told story of the largest demonstration in human history, and how the movement created by a small band of activists changed the world. Many of the communities and local organizers from the 2003 protest will partake in this special event.


“We Are Many” is a remarkable thought-provoking inside story behind the first-ever global demonstration and its surprising and unreported legacy of inspiring today's non-violent protest movements. The film features Danny Glover, Noam Chomsky, Ron Kovic, Medea Benjamin, Jesse Jackson, Ken Loach, Brian Eno, Bill Fletcher Jr., Lindsey German, and many more.


“The only film I’ve ever watched where the audience started clapping halfway through!” — Huffington Post


An energizing panel addressing the issues raised in the film and exploring the power of non-violent protest will follow both screenings. Seating is limited for the free screenings at 4 and 7 pm.

This has been made possible with a generous legacy donation in support of the four participating organizations: Sedona International Film Festival, Sedona International City of Peace, the Mental Health Coalition of the Verde Valley and NAMI. The value of this movie in this legacy program is that the donor was married to a Vietnam Veteran for 25+ years.  As a spouse, she carried the commitment to his healing and also hosted with Sedona International City of Peace the first Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans event in Sedona.  Subsequently this event has circled to five cities in the Verde Valley for the last seven years.  This is her passion – to create community engagement that transforms our hearts to feel each other’s pain and be instruments for our connection and joy together.
