One Peace at A Time


A film about a messed up world…and how we could fix it. Sprinkled with music from Bob Dylan, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, and Willie Nelsen, One Peace at A Time lyrically weaves a tapestry through 20 countries and is as magical as it is informative.

Activist Turk Pipkin (The Sopranos, Nobility) continues his global journey of knowledge in action with a goal to create a virtual road map to a better future by focusing on specific solutions in these troubled times.

Join Pipkin as he chronicles the model Indian orphanages of The Miracle Foundation, family planning initiatives with Thailand’s Mechai Viravaidya, Ethiopian water projects with A Glimmer of Hope, and Architecture for Humanity’s global design challenge for communities in need in the Himalayas, the Amazon, and the slums of Nairobi.
