Nobel Prize Winners Work with Youth

PeaceJam is a harrowing and inspiring look at the lives of five American teenagers growing up in a culture of violence, and the transformation that occurs when their lives are touched by greatness. PeaceJam follows five teens over a six year period as they face the stark realities of growing up, and as they work side-by-side with leading Nobel Peace Prize laureates – including the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, and President Oscar Arias – and learn to become leaders in their own communities.

Their stories are often funny, sometimes tragic, and always edgy and real. From the full-fledged gang member to the homeless child with an alcoholic mother, to the twins born of an interracial marriage, to the high school shooting victim, their dramatic life stories will both move and shock you.

“PeaceJam will help thousands of young people to gain a greater understanding of the world and about themselves…” –H.H. The Dalai Lama

Taken from over 500 hours of interviews and work in the field, this documentary records their transformation into young people of and conviction. It also captures the moments that changed their lives forever – the murder of gay student Matthew Shepard, an attempted suicide, the carnage at Columbine High School, the death of a father overdosed on drugs.

PeaceJam contains never before seen footage of leading Nobel Peace Prize laureates working with youth in the USA, South Africa, India, Guatemala and Costa Rica, and rare footage from inside Columbine High School both during and after the shootings. The film also features an original score created specifically for this documentary, including three original songs written by Columbine survivor Richard Castaldo.

NOTE: Rated . This video bears a parental advisory for some strong language and explicit content. This film is used in public schools and is highly recommended.
