Five Days to Change the World follows student activists from several countries while they are attending the largest world peace conference in history, as they create plans for their own future. Some of their agenda has already been realized.
In May 1999, 10,000 people from 100 countries gathered for the Hague Appeal for Peace and Justice. Narrated by Martin Sheen, Five Days to Change the World is a riveting account of the historic event - ignored by U.S. mainstream media.
Archival footage puts the issues they grappled with into context: child soldiers, land mines, small arms trade, nuclear weapons, racism, an international criminal court, and peace education.
Among those appearing in Five Days to Change the World are Nobel Peace Prize winners Desmond Tutu, Kofi Annan, Jose Ramos Horta, Aung San Suu Kyi and Jody Williams; authors Arundhati Roy, Jonathan Schell, Vandana Shiva; Queen Noor of Jordan; conference leader Cora Weiss; singer Judy Collins and hip hop artist/actor Mos Def.
