MY COUNTRY IS THE WORLD -
SHORT FILM
(8 min) US


TUESDAY 10/24, 8:00 PM (Session 13)

Director: Arthur Kanegis
Producers: Arthur Kanegis, Richard Crawford

Description:
The epic true story of a “World Citizen #1” Garry Davis who spent sixty-five years of his life as a citizen of no nation, only Earth—traveling the planet on his “World Passport” and using his thespian skills to engage in adventures so unique that his life made a front-page headline story in the New York Times and provoked major stories in The Washington Post, the LA Times and other media around the globe. Hailed by Albert Einstein for “the sacrifices he has made for the well-being of humanity,” extolled by Buckminster Fuller as the “New World Man,” and egged on by Eleanor Roosevelt to start “a worldwide international government,” Garry Davis was a pioneering thinker, an author of ten books, and founder of the World Service Authority—an organization in Washington, DC that issues World Passports to stateless refugees and to people who think global—above the nation-states that carve up our one globe.

Biography:
Writer/producer Arthur Kanegis is president and founder of Future WAVE, Inc. a nonprofit organization dedicated to using media to promote a more peaceful world. He owns all rights to Garry Davis story and has worked for a decade toward developing Garry's story into both a Future WAVE documentary, and a One Films narrative feature film.
