A fourth-grader’s understanding of “peace” probably doesn’t reach much further than the temporary peace-sign tattoo on her arm… or so you’d think.
Watch what happens when nine and ten-year-olds are placed in charge of foreign policy at the Lanesboro Art Center and FRFF screening of WORLD PEACE…AND OTHER 4th-GRADE ACHIEVEMENTS.
The film follows John Hunter’s fourth grade class as they take on world leadership roles and respond to real-world political problems while participating in the “World Peace Game.”
While it observes these young diplomats at work, the film offers more ideas about ways of thinking and problem solving, says Lanesboro Art Center Marketing Director, Sara Baskett.
The film won the “Feature Length 2nd Place Juried Award” at last year’s Frozen River Film Festival.
The screening takes place on Friday, Aug. 23rd at the St. Mane Theater in Lanesboro at 7:30 pm.
Tickets are five dollars, and students and teachers get in for free.

This will be the second summer event that Lanesboro and FRFF are co-sponsoring.
Their partnership developed two years ago with the hopes of spreading art and culture events throughout the community.
The team plans to continue its cross-marketing campaign to spread word of the Frozen River Film Festival to an even broader audience.
