Director: Sananda Kirschner | Producer: Sananda Kirschner
Focus Years: 2015 | Country: Austria
"As an 18-year-old Austrian movie-maker, Sananda Kirschner belongs to the young and privileged generation that has never witnessed war in his own country. Still, he asks how one can contribute best to peace on this planet. In the course of his quest, Kirschner found an MA Program for Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation right in his Tyrolean home. Since 2002 the University of Innsbruck has offered this unique academic combination of Transrational Peace Philosophy and Elicitive Conflict Transformation.
This documentary shows that students from all over the world come to Innsbruck to join this program and get trained in the methods of Strategic Capacity and Relationship Building. Backgrounds, concepts and didactics of the curriculum are presented. Kirschner accompanies students, faculty and facilitators from the classroom to the training fields of the Red Cross, to the Fire Fightersâ€™ Academy and the Austrian Armed Forces, and finally to the nature and wilderness school Native Spirit in the Tyrolean Alps, where they find many a way of experiencing, interpreting and living their version of the Many Peaces."
