Not in Our Name -- Featuring veteran anti war campaigner Tony Benn and peace campaigners from around the world, the film opens up a rich visual landscape to explore the folly of war.

Six years in the making Hashim and Maxwell wanted to take the anti war message to a wider audience through an examination of the work of a diverse range of artists against the war. The film includes footage from around the world, including Iraq and the USA.

Dancers, writers, composers and visual artists provide a candid analysis of the war through their work.

Since the documentary was begun Hashim and Maxwell have collaborated with a diverse range of artists who present their individual responses to war. Through painting, opera, music video, dance and a range of visual art the filmmakers take the viewer on a journey that celebrates humanity and the struggle against the war.
