Jude Law for UNICEF

Jude Law traveled and filmed in war-town Afghanistan to help promote the United Nation’s annual Peace One Day on Sept. 21, their annual day of worldwide cease-fire and nonviolence.

Accompanied by British filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, the pair interviewed children, government ministers and community leaders.

“Afghanistan will be the focal point for the second film, so it seemed important that Jeremy also have a sounding board, a third-party perspective on his trip,” Jude told reporters Thursday inside a guarded U.N. compound in Kabul.

“This film is about documenting and seeing how Peace Day can save lives,” he added “This is a country I’d always wanted to visit. It was a situation that I found intriguing. I felt that if it was safe for Jeremy it must be safe for me.”

“Wouldn’t it be a wonderful international message to come from a country which is perceived as a country purely of conflict, that this message of peace can sing out of it?” he asked.

You can listen to an audio interview (.ram) of Jude and Gilley.
