I am very honoured to be included in the celebration of the tenth Anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Jody Williams for her amazing work involving landmines and the Ottawa Convention to Band Landmines.
Cinema Verite, is hosting FOCUS 2007 this month in Monaco and Paris. The meetings will focus on the issue of landmines and cluster bombs, and will honour 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Jody Willimas for her contribution to the movement against landmines. The official artist BLAKE will be showing his Fragments Series of sculpture at the evening ceremony in Monaco under the patronage of S.A.R. la Princess de Hanovre.
In addition to Williams, the events will also pay tribute to Louis Jenson, the inspiration for the film North Country, and Carla del Ponte, the Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague. It will take place in Monaco from Oct 10 to 11 and continue afterwards in Paris from Oct 12 to 14.
Among films already confirmed are Rory Kennedy’s Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, Marcel Schupbach’s film about Carla del Ponte Carla’s List and actress Marianne Denincourt’s directory debut, a documentary about children in Afghanistan.
