Law promotes peace message as cameras roll on follow-up film
“My role is as a believer rather than
as a famous face,” Jude Law said
yesterday on his arrival at MIPCOM
as Peace One Day Ambassador.
The film star said he was “deeply
honoured” to be supporting his
friend, film-maker Jeremy Gilley (left), in
spreading the peace message.
The two are promoting the documentary
The Day After Peace,
which charts Gilley’s 10-year battle
for a global day of ceasefire and
non-violence — an annual UN International
Day Of Peace was
established in 2001.
But the campaign does not stop
there. Gilley said he and Law were
producing another film “which will
tell the story of the next few years”.
He added: “It is all about using the
camera to make a difference.”
Law — who will co-produce the
next film — echoed that, saying: “The important thing is keeping the
cameras rolling. We have been
meeting NGOs, ambassadors, people
in the military and just ordinary
people, and it is interesting how
they are motivated by the camera.”
