This video tells the heart-breaking stories of three people in different conflict areas who are fed up with the situation they live in. They make music with people from the other side of the border. The movie is filmed on the borders of India/Pakistan, Israel/Palestine and Northern Ireland, in places where the borders are very visible because of a separating wall or fence. The movie shows how strong an impact walls have both mentally and physically. It is a story of people who try to live and communicate through music, a language that goes beyond bombs, fighting and differences.
‘Music above Fighting’ portrays the vision of MasterPeace with photographic shots, focusing on its major goal to involve people in peacebuilding. MasterPeace is a grassroots peace initiative with the goal to involve as many people as possible in peace by connecting peace to music, art, sport and new media.
