Our quest is also to find solutions and to meet the unsung heroes in every country who offer us hope and a path to a better tomorrow.


 

– Dying To Tell The Story 45min DVD

– Dying To Tell The Story 90min DVD

Directed by Kyra Thompson, hosted by Amy Eldon Turteltaub

This Emmy-nominated documentary studies the motivations of journalists dedicated enough to risk their lives for a story. We follow narrator Amy Eldon on a personal journey to find meaning in the death of her older brother, 22-year-old Reuters photographer Dan Eldon. Dan was among a group of five journalists attacked by a mob during the Somali famine in 1993; he and three others were stoned to death. As she interviews other journalists and the sole surviving witness to Dan’s death, we see her attain the peace she sought.


 

– Soldiers of Peace

After the success of “Dying to Tell the Story” Creative Visions collaborated with CNN to create a documentary entitled Soldiers of Peace: A Children’s Crusade.” “Soldiers of Peace” focuses on the young organizers of the Children’s Mandate for Peace in Colombia – which has for two years been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. It features 5 Colombian youth leaders and examines their lives and the determination that has helped them to make changes in the lives of so many. $22

“The Children’s Movement for Peace in Colombia provides perhaps, the clearest proof to date of the power of children’s voices to bring about positive social change.”
Carol Bellamy, executive director of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
