A Bold Peace
Reel and Meal, in collaboration with the Utopia Film Festival, will feature A Bold Peace.
In his famous “Cross of Iron” speech in 1953, President Eisenhower critiqued the military-industrial complex while asking, “Is there no other way the world may live?” Costa Rica shows us another way to live. In 1948, Costa Rica dismantled their military establishment and intentionally cultivated security relationships with other nations through treaties, international laws, and international organizations. Free of the burden of military spending, they use the financial savings to invest in their people. In this documentary, director Matthew Eddy shows how they accomplished this and how they have continued to maintain this success for almost 70 years.
