Children of War

Top of page

A remarkable documentary in which teenagers from war-torn countries, filmed in interaction with Canadian high-school students, speak with dignity, maturity and candor about the struggles of their people and the suffering they have endured. From El Salvador, Guatemala, Northern Ireland, East Timor, and the African countries of Namibia and Zimbabwe, they participated in the 1985-86 International Youth for Peace and Justice Tour. Several of the teenagers are political refugees. This is an inspiring, thought-provoking discussion-starter on issues of peace, war, international relations, and the daily realities of many other cultures.
