Short film at “Vara i fred” – a conversation about freedom

On the 30th of January at 6 pm at “Fredens hus”, will we screen three films from last year’s festival at the seminar “Vara i fred” – a conversation about freedom. Take the opportunity to attend an interesting seminar while watching last year’s favorites (the films are presented at the bottom of this page).

The main goal for this seminar is to discuss the definition of “peace”, and it is the first of many seminars that will be held in celebration of the “Fredsåret 2014”.

The moderator Svante Zettergren will be leading the discussion with the guests Gina Gustavsson, Fayek Saleh and Doreen Månsson.

In Uppsala we are celebrating that there has been peace in Sweden for 200 years, but at the same time we need to look outside our boarders and acknowledge the situiations in other parts of the world.

OBS: this seminar will be held in Swedish
