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.
