    Hello Prof Roger
    I Hope that our film “One Day After Peace” will interest you and Manchester University library.
    ONE DAY AFTER PEACE the critically acclaimed documentary is available from Docs For Education.
    The film is being screened NOW all over the world at the most prestigious film festivals and just won the Grand Prix at the Human Rights Film Festival in Paris. We are very proud that we can offer the film to institute, university and colleges libraries when it’s still showing in Festivals/theatres across the globe.
    For more information on this film, including a full list of festival screenings and reviews, visit :

    “Peace may be difficult to imagine, but this brave and inspiring film puts the process in a global, historical context that helps us glimpse what might be possible…” — Urban Times London, May 8, 2012

    The following university libraries have already purchased the film: DePaul (Chicago), Ithaca (NY), Marquette(WI), Las-Vegas (NV), St.Nichols (MA), Chapell Hill (NC), Tel-Aviv & Jerusalem (Israel), Otago (New-Zealand), Brandon & York (Canada), Utrecht (The Nederlands), Wellesley college (MA), Kennesaw (GA), Austin CC (TX), Eastern Washington (WA), School for Peace (Cambodia) SOAS (London UK)
    ONE DAY AFTER PEACE has had a strong impact on people who watch it, we’ve been thrilled at the impact it made on the audiences and the views & discussions it arises. When making a documentary film, we ask ourselves – can the film make a change? Can a film move peoples’ minds and hearts?
    With this film I and the filmmakers believe WE CAN.
    For purchasing the film for your Library/institution and for special screenings Please contact me at: laufern@netvision.net.il
