Forty years ago, 20 avant-garde filmmakers envisioned a “Week of the Angry Arts”. Each artist created a short film in the name of PEACE. Filmmakers such as Stan Vanderbeek, Robert Frank, Storm de Hirsch, Robert Breer, Ken Jacobs, Shirley Clarke, Carolee Schneemann, Jonas Mekas and Larry Jordan were part of this collective outcry against violence.

In a similar spirit, contemporary filmmakers were asked to “get out your cameras and shoot up to three minutes of video, then send it to the Film Coop. Become a part of a CINEMA FOR PEACE by having your work screened on this historical September 25th evening.” 26 new works were received from around the world
