The Symbol of Peace

`TimberClipse | @zevimages | Web | facebook | IMDb | Tumblr

Part of the Official Selection of:
Austin Film Festival, Woodstock Film Festival, Peace River Film Festiva, MovingMedia Film Festival

The Symbol of Peace, directed by Zev Vel, is a short documentary about the peace sign and has been screened at the Austin Film Festival, Woodstock FIlm Festival, MovingMedia Film Festival, and Peace River Film Festival.
Morning brings news of conflicts from every corner of the globe. In this troubled time, the peace sign is a comforting sight for many. On t-shirts or jewelry, bumper stickers or posters, it reminds us there is more to life beyond struggle and strife. The peace sign has survived for over 50 years because it is a symbol of hope and a philosophy uniting countless loving people. It has struggled to stay alive over the years as its popularity and acceptance have waxed and waned. But the strength it has now will keep it forever strong. Directed and filmed by Zev Vel, The Symbol of Peace will share the inspiring stories and dreams of the people who love the peace sign and have created their own peace signs to display on their homes and businesses. Here in Woodstock, New York, we are surrounded by the symbol; it is part of our daily landscape. It seems fitting for Woodstock to be the center of the documentary.

The Symbol of Peace features lots of art donated and submitted by artists on deviantART. I would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists.

Congratulations Zev.. you did so well,, it was an honour and a pleasure for me to be part of your film.. I've written some things on a special group.! ".Please can people write their reactions to The Symbol of Peace film ?
Good or bad.
. its just that though its short it took a year to make, and a huge amount of effort and hard work to get it to the Austin film festival. Zev Vel made it ,, and all of the people in it were very genuine, I thought. My part was done through skype, which was hard in itself. I really would love to hear what you thought ..thanks , Gea xx :-) anyone can join,, its on facebook [link]
