Today, we are at war within ourselves, with our environment, and with the world. Award-winner filmmaker Greg Reitman’s ROOTED IN PEACE challenges viewers to examine their values as Americans and human beings, urging us to take notice, stop the cycle of violence and proactively seek ways to find personal and geopolitical balance.
The film relies on memoir as well as interviews with such luminaries, artists and activists as Deepak Chopra, Donovan, Mike Love, Pete Seeger, David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many others.
Throughout ROOTED IN PEACE, Reitman heeds former guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s words: “If the forest is to be green, every tree must be green, if there’s going to be Peace on earth than everybody must need to feel that quality of Peace.” Reitman poses the basic question — how do we want to live? — and asks viewers to do the same.
