The Peacemaker documentary on Prof. O’Malley premieres

The Peacemaker, a documentary about FCT Director Professor Padraig O’Malley by filmmaker James Demo, premiered last Saturday, April 9th, at the The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, an annual international event held in Durham, North Carolina.

The film, according to Mr. Demo, “will take viewers into Padraig O’Malley’s world of negotiations and conferences with leaders from war-torn regions. Interviews with O’Malley and key figures in his life paint an intricate portrait of what motivates him to take on the seemingly impossible and show us how one man can truly make a difference.”

The film covers O’Malley’s 30-plus years of work  at the vanguard of peacemaking. Mr. Demo and his crew followed Professor O’Malley for the past five years — to Kosovo, Northern Ireland, Iraq and Nigeria — to film the Forum for Cities in Transition and O’Malley in action.

The New England film premiere will be April 28, 2016, 7 p.m. at The Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in Toronto, Canada, April 29-30th, 2016.

Stay tuned for news on global access to the film!

One thought on “The Peacemaker documentary on Prof. O’Malley premieres

  • Congratulations Professor O’Mally and to all who have made the Peacemaker film possible. I have just watched the trailer and look forward to seeing the full documentary. As someone who has attended all of the Forum for Cities in Transition conferences around the world I know how difficult it has been for Professor O’Mally to get people to share their experiences especially when he is dealing with his own personal struggle.
