It is no exaggeration to say that war has coexisted with mankind since the beginning of civilization until now.
‘World peace’ has become a more unfamiliar word than ‘WAR’, and everyone wants world peace but no one thinks it is possible.
Can we really achieve a world of peace without war?
Documentary ‘The Great Legacy’ begins with this question.
The documentary crew of the past two years have met Mindanao, the Philippines, who is actually at peace.
Mindanao, the Philippines, where gunshots were always heard, was a representative conflict area in the Philippines.
The conflict between religion and ethnicity, which began in the Spanish colonial period, was so deep that it was thought to be difficult to resolve.
The distrust and hostility, in people’s minds, that grew in the painful process of negotiations that lasted for more than 40 years were scarier than flying bullets.
In such Mindanao, people began to melt weapons to make farming tools, and a procession of 10,000 people eagerly crying for peace filled the streets.
This scene was more surprising than anyone else in the Philippines.
What’s even more surprising is that it started with a Korean peace activist who allowed them to join hands for peace and collect distrust, which was scarier than fighting.
They call him the “Messenger of Peace,” who gave peace and hope that no one could solve.
Those who are expanding peace across the Philippines now ask you that question.
“Do you really want a world of peace?”

I want to join this festival! It seems so much fun and meaningful at the same time.
This is such beautiful and hopeful news. I was blown away after watching the UK screening of the ‘Great Legacy’ film documentary related to the civil peace agreement that ended the tragic and fratricidal Islamic-Catholic religious conflict in Mindanao. So many people suffered for no reason. News of this Peace Convention truly needs to be spread far and wide, and I will play my part in doing so. Thank you for reporting this peace news – I hope more media outlets will do the same. Greetings of peace from the UK✌
