The War
Against War

Culture Project and award-winning producer Fisher Stevens (The Cove, 2009, National Board Review Winner for Best Documentary) are in production on The War Against War, a documentary film that takes an in-depth and honest look at United Nations peacekeeping operations around the globe – spotlighting the fourteen standing forces stabilizing political tensions in Haiti, and the extreme dangers the peacekeepers, also known as Blue Helmets, face every day.

Born in the Cold War era, when international rivalries often stymied the UN Security Council, peacekeepers were deployed to maintain ceasefires on the ground toward a peaceful resolution of conflicts. Since then, the role of peacekeepers has grown exponentially, as a primary component for building a lasting and sustainable peace.

Hear Fisher in his own words on the importance of the UN peacekeepers and the efforts of Culture Project to raise public awareness about their work.
