Session 5 – Cultural Peacebuilding: JUN AI Foundation Movie Screening and Discussion
Music, the arts, and media are powerful agents for communicating values and inspiring social change. Understanding the potential of cultural media to move people’s hearts, GPW hosted the first ever screening of JUN AI in the Philippines. The film is a compelling story of one woman’s unconditional love in overcoming conflict between China and Japan after World War II. Following the screening, lead actress, script writer, executive producer and founder of the JUN AI World Peace Foundation, Keiko Kobayashi, made remarks on how women-led initiatives in culture and the arts can promote peace.
