Storyline

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.

SOLDIERS WITHOUT GUNS IS INCREDIBLE
21 April 2019 | by karmloveSee all my reviews

This film is the best kind of rollercoaster ride. It's powerful, heartbreaking, heartwarming, humourous and gives so much inspiration and hope for what's possible in creating peace. The archive footage collected over 13 years is incredible, Lucy Lawless's narration is velvety smooth and the all NZ soundtrack makes it super special too. Everyone I have talked to who has watched the film - raves about it. Go see it.
