In 1997, after 14 failed peace agreements, the New Zealand army stepped into the conflict with a radical new plan — instead of bringing guns, the unarmed soldiers took guitars.
Condemned by the media, the peacekeeping mission pushed forward using only music, Māori culture and aroha to help end the worst civil war in the Pacific’s history.
Soldiers Without Guns made me prouder to live in this country than any film in recent memory. Go see it.
