As a part of a 12 days international campaign from International Day of Peace to International Day of Non-Violence, Control Arms Foundation of India (CAFI) is screening India premiere of the award winning film “Disarm” on Thursday, October 1 at Gulmohar Hall, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi. The film will be screened at 6.30 pm. The 60 minute film Disarm spans a dozen countries to look at how despite a global ban, millions of antipersonnel mines continue to claim victims around the world. Co-directed by Mary Wareham, a leader of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines and photo-journalist Brian Liu, DISARM features striking footage smuggled put of the Myanmar, scenes from war ravaged Colombia, footage from Iraq, and exclusive scenes filmed by Afghan and Bosnian deminers. Defined as a conventional weapon, antipersonnel mines inflict destruction upon civilian populations for decades after the initial conflict has ended. Despite thousands of casualties a year, mines continue to be used and stockpiled by governments and rebel groups. Disarm is a call to action. The film makes it clear that a mine-free world is possible--if we all insist that it be so. It is a film about a crucial worldwide humanitarian effort, one which can, with the commitment of all governments, be realized.
