Should be seen in every school!
20 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

When I discovered The Peace Tree on television, a few years, ago, I was THRILLED! Not only because I had once, as a child, envisioned that such a tree should exist in the world, but as the founder of Artists Against Racism, I was thrilled that someone as brilliant as director Mitra Sen went ahead and made this tree a reality!

A tree which includes symbols from every religion and faith--imagine that! A tree which shows children to respect all faiths, religions and cultures as equal--imagine that? Then imagine someone visionary enough to turn this idea into a film, someone who is a school teacher plus filmmaker! It couldn't get better than that!

Needless to say, I found this a phenomenal film which should be mandatory view for kids in every elementary school, and I hope it spreads far and wide. Such a film should be seen in every school, on every airline, and at Christmas each year (though Peace Tree Day is in June!).

I believe it would help bring peace to the world, starting with youths, our future, and its Producer, Mitra Sen, should win a Nobel Prize! Bravo Mitra!!
