A David and Goliath story of a Pacific Island people rising up against the largest mining corporation in the world. The war climaxed with a military coup and on-going fractional fighting which seemed impossible to stop. Unstoppable until the NZ army choose to enter the war, but instead to taking guns they took guitars. This story follows the riveting journey of unarmed peacekeepers arriving in the chaos of war. Political assassinations, dead threats, twists and turns more powerful than a Hollywood epic but its all captured on newsreels super 8 camera. Against all odds, Goliath was conquered not by force but with music and love. This is a story of hope in a world at war.
I have seen this film twice and each time came away with the feeling that the whole world should see it. I have recommended it to many other people and hope that its message will spread through our comunities.
There must be a way for this type of responce to conflict to be used in many other places.
I would like to think that our entire government and opposition members of parliament could be persuaded to see it and to meet with those involved.
New Zealand could lead a whole new era of the resolving of conflicts.
We are well respected around the world for our way of dealing with religious and racial conflict.
This could be another way to lead the nations to a more peaceful world for future generations.
