War and Peace (Jang Aur Aman)
War and Peace (Jang Aur Aman) - £10.99

Filmed over four tumultuous years in India, Pakistan, Japan and the USA following nuclear tests in the Indian sub-continent, and framed by the murder of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, an act whose portent and poignancy remains undiminished half a century later, War and Peace is a documentary journey of peace activism in the face of global militarism and war. The film examines the sub-continent s trajectory towards unabashed militarism and the costs being extracted from citizens in the name of national security. From the plight of residents living near the nuclear test site to the horrendous effects of uranium mining on local indigenous populations, it becomes abundantly clear that contrary to a myth first created by the United States, there is no such thing as the 'peaceful Atom'. Patwrdhan's documentary has become more potent and relevant than ever, as we enter a 21st century where war has become perennial, enemies are re-invented and economies inextricably tied to the production and sale of weapons. In the moral wastelands of the world memories of Gandhi seem like a mirage that never was, created by a suposed 'thirst for peace' and our leaders very distance from it.
