|EUROPEAN ONE-TIME ONLINE SCREENING OF AWARD WINNING AUSTRALIAN PEACE DOCUMENTARY|
Monday 21st September 7pm.
If ‘making it’ in New York is the benchmark of success, Australian peace documentary “Can Art Stop a Bullet? William Kelly’s Big Picture” looks destined to ‘make it anywhere.’ This year alone the film has won awards in the New York Festivals and in the Houston International Film Festival (a tough nut to crack). In 2019 it won the Indie Fest 2019 Humanitarian Award, the Impact Docs Award of Excellence, Docs without Borders Film Festival (Excellence), BIG SYN International Film Festival (Winner), Indie Fest Award of Merit, and Pacific Film Awards.
“Can Art Stop a Bullet” has been invited to screen at the United Nations in Geneva, and at the Switzerland International Film Festival, APOX Film Festival (Croatia), Richmond International Film Festival (Virginia USA), Orlando, Utah, Ft Lauderdale, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, Nepal Human Rights International Film Festival amongst others.
“Can Art Stop a Bullet never avoids topics such as the war in Syria, Abu Ghraib, school shootings and the Black Lives Matter movement, going exactly there where other art documentaries tend to draw a visible line they rarely dare to cross. Educational, essential viewing for every living creature that believes the world can be a better place than it is right now.”
Rating: 5 out of 5.

So what is it about the film that resonated around the world and made it so well received in such a short time? The film follows artist and peace activist William Kelly as he travels the globe exploring the relationship between art and human consciousness.
It is within this global environment that Kelly poses the question “can art stop a bullet?” to more than 30 prominent international artists such as actor Martin Sheen, A.C. Grayling, John Keane, Nick Ut, and Dr Rama Mani. It has been described as “a beautiful portrait and testimony to the power of art in making sense of human experience and building a better future”.
According to FILMINK journalist Geordie Anderson: “this is a film for everyone interested in the future of humanity; everyone who has asked themselves why war and conflict have been perpetually with us throughout recorded history.”
