The Man Who Built Peace captures the life and peace-making legacy of a man you may never have heard of – and who changed the world. Following a personal experience of transformation, Frank Buchman set out to pass on that experience to the world and helped shape the course of history. He was a revolutionary thinker and leader whose trust-building, reconciliation and peace efforts greatly influenced the 20th century. His vision and legacy are a powerful answer to the growing mistrust, injustice and extremism facing the world today.

Más allá del perdón (Beyond Forgiving) es un documental de 28 minutos que plasma el viaje en que se adentran un hombre y una mujer sudafricanos con el objetivo de traer reconciliación y cura a su país tras los daños causados durante el periodo de segregación racial conocido como el apartheid. Ginn Fourie y Letlapa Mphalele forman un dúo insólito: él, de raza negra y ateo, y ella, de raza blanca y cristiana. Cada uno ha sufrido consecuencias directas de las acciones llevadas a cabo por el otro, pero ambos han sido víctimas, y también ambos han sido capaces de salir adelante a pesar de su dolor. Aquello que los une es una profunda historia de tragedia, perdón y esperanza.

Towards the end of that time, in May 1921, Dr Frank Buchman paid his first visit to Oxford. One evening he was a guest in Loudon Hamilton's rooms in Christ Church at a meeting of the Beef and Beer Club. Out of this grew the Oxford Group, now known as Moral Re-Armament.
