An educational short film presenting the concept of Peace Journalism, a mixed technique of stop-motion and macro photography. The press and news to which we are exposed every day, create in our mind an image of the world surrounding us. Norwegian prof. Johan Galtung, the principal founder of the discipline of peace and conflict studies, claims that our common daily news should be classified as War Journalism. This kind of journalism tends to represent conflicts as an endless war, and by using text, editing and photography causes a negative impact on world opinion and the news we consume.
