Tom Eddington is currently executive producing a film about non-violence and the new story of humanity. The film is working in connection with the NonViolenceNow Campaign (www.nonviolencenow.org), which recently kicked off a non-violence campaign at the U.N. And is featured in Newsweek and other media outlets around the World.
The documentary takes the point of view that the story we have been told about our species throughout our lives is wrong – and that contrary to popular belief, we are not a violent species. The film makes the case that biologically, socially and psychologically, we are actually hard-wired to be non-violent. It includes interview segments with scientists in each of these areas of expertise who study human behavior and evolution.
The narrative follows several real-life people throughout the film – including kids affected by the Parkland shooting – that captures a reality that at first seems counter-intuitive. The documentary makes the case that while there are of course conflict zones throughout the world, the whole purpose of the media is to generalize these to apply to all mankind and stoke fear. A revolutionary film that changes the essential story of humanity, “The Journey Home” will be released as the culmination of a full-fledged integrated media campaign in October 2019, the 150th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi (clips of whom will be sprinkled through the film).
