Originally inspired by Peace Pilgrim, a woman who walked for peace for 28 years, director Tara Golden concieved of the idea of a film that would combine a narrative story line and a documentary journey. The idea was to mix the powerful story of a man who does a peace walk with the real life adventure of walking every step of way through Scotland and England. The plan was to meet interesting local charactors along the 1100 mile hike and to integrate them into the story, and it worked up until a point.

The hike started well in John O’Groats on June 5th but along the way we faced conflict, creative differences and a car accident. Two crew members decided not to go on further than Glasgow. With only two of us left we found that we were not able to make the film as planned and restructured the film as a documentary.

Additional clips from the film can be found on our channel and each adds to our story.. They are presented to you here in a collage form but will be interwined in the final film.

Note from Tara: You can see an improved version of this edit on my channel. You can get the book on peacepilrgim for free from peacepilgrim.org

Pants on fire Since fear is used to enhance our ability to wage wars. Here is yet another example of false information used to justify hate and war.

Turns out there is a good chance the JFK plot was also fake, just like many of the other ones the media makes a big deal out of.

NEW YORK (AFP) – An alleged plot to blow up fuel tanks and pipelines at New York’s JFK airport had little chance of success, according to safety experts, who have questioned whether the plot ever posed a real threat.
