The concept of non-violence, as practiced by M.K. Gandhi, worked well for India, and their Independence movement. But can non violent actions achieve results today? An Eye for an Eye? questions if it is naive to think that non-violence can work in this century, against violent weapons of the military and silent weapons of the media. 'An eye for an eye' can just make the whole world blind, but what do you think?
'An eye for an eye' is an interactive documentary film by Mousumi De, Richard Edkins & Karen Bristoll. Featuring Tony Benn, Salma Yacoob, George Galloway, Brian Haw, Rose Gentle, Claire Short, activists, and general public. Filmed 2005/ 2006. This is a linear preview version of the film for screening. On the vimeo channel vimeo.com/channels/aneyeforaneyefilm you can see clips from the Interactive film, which used the Korsakow engine. Herbert Gallery in Coventry exhibited the interactive version of “An Eye For An Eye” as part of Coventry’s annual Peace Month during November 2009. Along with my Installation “What U Shoutin’ ‘bout”.
