MasterPeace – Music Above Fighting

On the 4th of May, 2012, 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 the situation they live in. They make music with people from the other side of the border and tell about the conflict. The movie is filmed on the borders of India/Pakistan, Israel/Palestine and Northern Ireland, at places where the borders are very visible because of a separating wall or fence. The movie shows how deconstructive the wall is, 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 peace building. MasterPeace is a bottom-up peace initiative with the goal to involve as many people as possible in peace by connecting peace to music, art, sport and new media. Through different initiatives, several attractive peace-building projects, global and local, MasterPeace works towards a mesmerizing concert in Cairo on the International Day of Peace in 2014 (21 September), where artists from different conflict areas will perform together on stage, to encourage dialogue and promote togetherness. This tremendous concert will be an exclusive reward for people who actively supported peace-building activities in the years before the International Day of Peace in 2014. The documentary is inviting everybody to join the movement and start their peace building initiatives right away.
