More About Bush for Peace

One night when co-directors Sarah Christman and Jen Simmons were sitting around “being upset with Bush” they decided that they wanted to do something about it. Calling upon their numerous filmmaking and sound design talents they came up with the idea of using Bush’s own words to create a picture of what could be if our president had a different agenda. Using public domain footage of Bush’s address to Americans on the eve of war on Iraq, Jen and Sarah rescripted the speech to call for demilitarization and peaceful collaboration between nations.
