Movie Reviews

More than a good feeling film....
Lea Burleson Buffington | Texas | 04/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Turk and his family are truly making each day count, and this film shows that you don't have to be Bill Gates to make important, life saving change or to increase the economic viability of a community by supporting a few special organizations that provide children and communities with basic rights--clean water, nutrition, education, to name a few. We don't have a lot, but now we are supporting a group home in India via Austin's own Miracle Foundation for the cost of a good haircut and color each month. We are addicted to Kiva and all our $25.00 loans have paid back or are current. Watch the film and find your passion as Turk and his family have found theirs."
Awesome for adults and kids alike!

""One Peace at a Time" is a follow-up of Turk Pipkin's movie "The Nobelity Project," in which he interviewed Nobel Prize laureates all over the world about the major problems facing the Earth and humanity. In "One Peace" he highlights people and organizations that are doing something about these problems--nonprofits like The Miracle Foundation and A Glimmer of Hope, people like Willie Nelson. Each segment tells a story, and while the movie covers some very serious topics, at the end the viewer is left feeling hopeful and inspired and ready to go out and do something good in the world themselves. It's appropriate for children - even my 8 year old daughter got something out of it. We saw it last Summer and she still talks about it a year later."
Provides framework for understanding world problems

"I feel lucky that I had the chance to see this film.

Early in the film the 6 human rights of children were listed:
1. the right to clean water
2. the right to adequate nutrition
3. the right to health care
4. the right to an education
5. the right to a stable loving environment
6. the right to live in conditions of freedom and dignity

Then the question was asked about each right: "Why and where is this right violated and what are the solutions?" This provides the organizing framework for the rest of the film. We start by going to places with inadequate water supplies. We get to visit with the women and girls who spend hours every day carrying water. Then we get to see how the problem of clean water distribution is being addressed. Next we go to places with inadequate food supplies and learn about the causes and solutions to hunger.

The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the producer didn't bother to provide English subtitles. Sure everybody spoke English, but I had to watch the film 3 times to catch everything. It also tended to ramble a bit, spending way too much time playing chess with Willie Nelson for example. But I'm thankful that I had the chance to see the world as one family with quantifiable problems and quantifiable solutions."
