**With director James Demo in attendance for a Q&A after the May 20th screening.**
In some of the most dangerous crisis zones on earth, international peacemaker Padraig O'Malley works a peacemaking model based on his recovery from addiction. We meet him in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.
New York Times Critics' Pick: nyti.ms/2BOyLDZ
«The movie is a fascinating portrait that is if anything too brief.» — Glenn Kenny
The Boston Globe: bit.ly/2v8pML9
«By the end of “The Peacemaker,” you feel you’re watching a Samuel Beckett character furiously trying to improvise himself out of the play. In the process, he’s bringing ...the rest of us along.” — Ty Burr
Variety: bit.ly/2nS2q6v
»He’s a haunted, contradictory character, to the point that he isn’t just more fascinating than the conflicts he’s trying to solve. The more we get to know him, the more his core motivation — is he an idealist or something else? — becomes the mystery of the film.” — Owen Gleiberman
— Directed by James Demo
USA, 2016, DCP, 90 min.
