Soldiers Without Guns

This film is a David and Goliath story of a Pacific Island people rising up against the largest mining corporation in the world. Ten years of war saw fourteen failed peace agreements. In 1997, the New Zealand army stepped into the conflict with a radical new plan. Instead of taking guns into the war-zone, unarmed soldiers took guitars. This idea was condemned by the national and international media - no one thought it could work. We follow the riveting journey of the peacekeepers as they endeavored to use music, Maori culture and Aroha to end the worst civil war in the Pacific's history. This film shines a light on the untold story of unsung heroes: a story all New Zealanders can and will be proud to call their own.

Starring: Lucy Lawless
