e feel very fortunate to have a number of months ago come across the film productions of Mr. Regis Tremblay while visiting the YouTube channel of Veterans For Peace. Just recently, Mr. Tremblay finished the first in his new series of films titled “Warriors For Peace: Veterans Speak”. We are honored, humbled and pleased to share his first work in the series to a wider audience – an extraordinary biographical film documenting the remarkable life of Vietnam veteran, author and renowned peace activist S. Brian Wilson.
After Mr. Tremblay posted the completed film on his YouTube channel on September 27, 2016, as of today it has received over 400 views. Perhaps those who view the film will share the opinion such an artistic work of excellence, rare in its level of raw power as a personal and historical documentary, deserves an audience of millions.
Whether young, middle-aged or older, beginners and accomplished video/film creators who view “Warriors For Peace” will likely gain a sense of encouragement and enthusiasm after experiencing Mr. Tremblay’s work, while persons who consider themselves peace activists will become deeply moved by the life of S. Brian Wilson.
Some viewers may find clear, direct parallels between Nicaragua and the mercenary forces called the contras of the 1980’s with Syria and mercenary forces ISIS, Al Nusrah and others here in late 2016.
Mr. Wilson’s life story is one that truly resonates with the world today, will certainly motivate a new generation of men and women with serious concerns about the negative consequences of military violence, and serve as profound model and inspiration to those intent upon ending war on Earth.
“Warriors For Peace”, the first in a new series by Regis Tremblay on the life of S. Brian Wilson is a true artistic achievement, and meets or surpasses all measures of what makes for a great documentary film. Any and all accolades, honors or awards the film receives in the future are justly deserved.
Thank you to S. Brian Wilson and Regis Tremblay for their deeply moving, spiritually transforming and collaborative effort for peace.
