ONE DAY FOR PEACE

In one of the most multicultural cities in the world, One Day For Peace takes us on a journey across the suburbs of Western Sydney to ask: what do you believe? This multi-faith, observational documentary combines everyday ritual with reflections on humanity, impermanence and social justice. An epic undertaking, One Day For Peace wrestles with some big (and not so big) questions inside homes, prayer houses and from the back seat of a taxi.

One Day for Peace was screened over two weeks in high pedestrian traffic locations across Western Sydney from 14–27 September 2015. The film was projected onto buildings, screens and in train stations in Auburn, Bankstown, Blacktown, Canley Heights, Liverpool, Mt Druitt and Parramatta.

On 22 September 2015, the ABC’s Geraldine Doogue facilitated a public talk at Parramatta Town Hall asking diverse panelists to respond to the film. Panellists included Maha Abdo, Professor James Arvanitakis, Dr. John Rees, and Rosie Dennis.

One Day For Peace was covered on Lateline.

One Day For Peace is available to be screened at schools, community and corporate events. Please contact Tian at tian@urbantheatre.com.au for more information.
