“The deep heart and mystery of The Peacemaker are most keenly felt in the personal struggles of its central character, whose recovery from alcohol addiction has profoundly influenced his work.”
— Variety

First Feature
Irish Premiere

The Peacemaker is an intimate portrait of international peacemaker Padraig O’Malley, who helps make peace for others but struggles to find it for himself. The film takes us from Padraig’s isolated life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to some of the most dangerous crisis zones on Earth – from Northern Ireland to Kosovo, Nigeria to Iraq – over five years – as he works a peacemaking model based on his recovery from addiction. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.
