War/Peace documentary film is re-introducing radical student activists from the late 60s. Ex-leaders of The Weather Underground movement Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are controversial characters in the United States based on public opinion. For decades the government and press have tried their best to silence these minds. The world is changing and nobody can predict what is to come. This film will serve as an historical reminder of what happened the last time a group of young minds planned to take over the government in the United States.


The film is also asking a question; how can we make a change if peaceful demonstration is not effective and violence only brings more violence? What can we do?


We are inviting you to see the film and hear Bill Ayers talk about his activism back in the 70's comparing to the current activism in the United States. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions from the filmmakers and Ayers.
This is a first time for the leader of The Weather Underground movement to visit and talk publicly in Finland and it is the first time the film is shown in Tampere. The event is free and open to all.
