Rooted in Peace
In celebration of the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21, Tampa Theatre is hosting a special screening of the award-winning documentary Rooted in Peace, which challenges viewers to examine their values as Americans and human beings.
Today we are at war within ourselves, with our environment, and with the world. Director and award-winning filmmaker, Greg Reitman takes us on film journey to take notice, stop the cycle of violence, and proactively seek ways to find personal and geopolitical balance.
Relying on memoir, but also interviews with such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, neuroscientist Dan Seigel and many others, 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.
