On the 4th of May MasterPeace launched their first mini-documentary ‘Music above Fighting.’ This video tells the heart-breaking stories of three people in different conflict areas who are fed up with thesituation they live in. They make music with people from the otherside of the border and tell about the conflict. The movie is filmed on theborders of India/Pakistan, Israel/Palestine and Northern Ireland, at placeswhere the borders are very visible because of a separating wall orfence. The movie shows how deconstructive the wall is, both mentallyand 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 aboveFighting’ portrays the vision of MasterPeace withphotographic shots, focusing on its major goal to involve people in peacebuilding. MasterPeace is a bottom-up peace initiative withthe goal to involve as many people as possible in peace by connecting peace tomusic, art, sport and new media.
