The Irish Film Festival Ottawa (IFFO) in association with the Irish Film Institute (IFI) present the documentary film The Peacemaker by James Demo, Saturday 18 May at 6:30 PM.
An intimate portrait of international peacemaker Padraig O'Malley - who helps make peace for others but struggles to find it for himself. The film takes us from Padraig's isolated life in Cambridge, Massachusetts to some of the most dangerous crisis zones on Earth – from Northern Ireland to Kosovo, Nigeria to Iraq – as he works a peacemaking model based on his recovery from addiction. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.
Join in on the post-screening for a talk back with the peacemaker Padraig O'Malley and General (retired) John de Chastelain.
