Peace Day Film Brings Jude Law To Afghanistan

Listen to this story on NPR….

Filming on Peace Day in Afghanistan

Jeremy Gilley, a British filmmaker and staunch supporter of the event has learned, getting people to observe a cease-fire even for one day isn’t easy, especially when you pick a place like Afghanistan.

Gilley documents such setbacks in this, his second movie about his difficult quest to make Peace Day a reality. And as is often the case in films, Hollywood stars like Jude Law come to the rescue.

Law accompanied Gilley to Afghanistan this month to promote the film and to persuade Afghans to mark Peace Day.
