" In this century, I can think of no more crucial goal than to learn about the other. "
Amin Maalouf - Writer and member of the Académie française
What if, away from tensions around questions of identity and the fear of others, we had found other realities?
What if we had stories to tell of audacious citizens who, with a strong desire for people of different beliefs to live together in harmony, have found ways of reinventing family, education, social relations, culture, and work...and have done so despite existing difficulties and frictions?
What if, thanks to these stories, gathered from around the world, we can begin to see the emergence of what could be the multi-identity and yet harmonious world of tomorrow? And what if we all took part in it?
ROONEY MARA SELECTED AS AMBASSADOR OF MAY 16TH UN INTERNATIONAL DAY OF LIVING TOGETHER IN PEACE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE WORLDWIDE RELEASE OF PIERRE PIRARD’S FILM ‘ALL OF US’.
“In a world steeped in deadly conflict, prejudice and greed, I am proud to align with the International Day of Living Together in Peace to underscore their message of hope, love and compassion. The optimist in me believes we have the capability to embrace our differences as a source of impenetrable strength, and together we have the power to condemn violence as a means to an end. With an outstretched hand, I invite you to join me on May 16th by signing this declaration of peace and tune into Pierre’s beautiful documentary “All of Us.”
