About the event:
Join the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section for the close of Conflict Resolution Week with a special screening of The Peacemaker, a documentary film directed and produced by James Demo.
The film is an intimate portrait of Padraig O’Malley, owner of the Plough & Stars bar in Cambridge, author, and UMass Boston professor, who has worked for decades to help divided societies come together.
The film takes us from Padraig’s life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to some of the most dangerous crisis zones on earth – from Northern Ireland to Kosovo, Nigeria to Iraq over five years – as he works with a peacemaking model based on his recovery from addiction. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.
A discussion with James Demo and Padraig O’Malley will follow the screening.
