World Peace Day was celebrated at the Harquail Theatre on 22 September, with Cayman being one of the 192 countries to watch Jeremy Gilley’s documentary: ‘The Day after Peace.’
The basis of the film, created by Gilley, was to chronicle his 10 year odyssey dedicated to creating one day of peace worldwide.
Several students, ages 12-18, from various schools in the Cayman Islands also contributed to the evening by creating a documentary of their own called, ‘What Does Peace Mean to You?’
The film produced by the youngsters gave participants an opportunity to ask persons what peace meant to them, as well as to articulate their own views and aspirations about the topic.
The evening was organised by Luigi Moxam of 1-345 clothing and apparel and Darquise Nantel of i-Inspire, a company that helps people of all ages to develop strategic approaches to their goals.
‘I am absolutely thrilled to be in a position to bring these most relevant documentaries to the public in the Cayman Islands and it is our sincere hope that persons will benefit immeasurably from this screening,’ Miss Nantel said.
She added that she would be spearheading more events of this kind and was particularly preparing to promote awareness for World HIV Day.
A peace march and rally are also scheduled for Saturday, 26 September, beginning at Heroes Square and ending at Dart Park.
