Hosted by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the second Peace on Earth Film Festival runs Friday through Sunday, February 26 through 28, at the Chicago Cultural Center. Much of the programming consists of short videos, but several feature-length entries are scheduled throughout the weekend. Avantika Hari's drama Land Gold Women (Fri 8 PM) looks at honor killing among Indian immigrants in the British city of Birmingham. Joshua Grossberg's documentary A Bridge Life: Finding Our Way Home (Sat 4:45 PM) is about a Florida man who traveled to the Houston Astrodome in the days after Hurricane Katrina and offered to help ten evacuees put their lives back together. Jenny Stein's documentary Peaceable Kingdom (Sat 7:15 PM) profiles several traditional farmers who've reexamined their relationship to animals; the filmmakers will take part in a discussion after the screening. And Lexy Lovell and Michael Uys's documentary The Good Soldier (Sun noon) tells the stories of five U.S. combat veterans whose experiences have turned them against war. All programs are free, and all screenings are by video projection; for more information and a complete schedule see peaceonearthfilmfestival.org. —J.R. Jones
