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.

Hello :)
I'm a participant of #FeedbackFrenzy contest 02 and i will share with you my thoughts and criticism.

You know ... I have to congrats you for sharing this theme with the whole deviantart community and web sites places because the term peace despite being the target of so many events on the planet continues to be something difficult to achieve is commendable and all this human effort.
The peace symbol itīs something really curious because I believe there are many people who wear t-shirts with the symbol or other adornment with it and know that only means peace because it was said to them but maybe not seek the reason of having this form, this aspect or its history.
when I was watching the video I remembered once being in a jewelery shop and my friend wanted to buy a necklace with the symbol and at that moment I wondered to myself, "Does she want to buy for its significance? or is it to be beautiful and be the trends of the moment? ... I never asked why because I think it is something that should be present within each one but I believe there are many people who maybe just use it "just to not look bad "or" buy "to feel good .... So i think that like it was in the vedeo there are diferents means of how to think about piece or how to help for having piece because all people think of different ways. It is not just having acquired an education because their culture did so. it is about how we think about what really affects us and how we make our decision because the human being have this ability. This is my own opinion :) i belive that there existe An infinite number of other opinions.
unfortunately we often think in peace because something violent or inhumane happened. So the visual form appears in the world in consequence of what happened and as a way to "prevent" new sufferings or bad actions.

Regarding to the visual impact of the vedeo i liked the passages have a natural effect in my opinion and the black background with white text because I think there is a large concentration that allows that time for its visual impact is accompanied by the feeling of the sentences. :clap: it was a moment of hear, see, feel and reflect. I really liked to know that different views from diferent people with diferent ages because Their notion is constantly progressing as maturity and life experiences. I think that when those phrases have emerged about the history of how, when was a moment of silence and and archive because time passes so quickly but what "once was" must always be present in our minds.

I really hope that more people use a little of their time to see this vedeo and once again thanks for the share :)
Continue with your personal projects because they are allowing us to move forward. :aww:

( if there are sometinh that you didnīt understand please let me know and i will try to express with other words)
