Studio D of the National Film Board of Canada, a women's film making unit established to make films by, for, and about women, has created a group of five films that effectively develop the argument that women can and must join the effort to bring peace to a nuclear world. The first of these peace films, "If You Love This Planet," consists of words and images from a speech by Dr. Helen Caldicott, author and spokesperson for Physicians for Social Responsibility, which questions the industrial nations' increasing stocks of nuclear arms. "Speaking Our Peace" follows Muriel Duckworth, a Canadian peace activist, through a series of conversations with women in Canada and the Soviet Union which introduce the breadth of women's involvement in peace efforts. Three spin-off films resulted from "Speaking Our Peace": "A Writer in the Nuclear Age: A Conversation with Margaret Laurence"; "Nuclear Addiction: Dr. Rosalie Bertell on the Cost of Deterrence"; and "A Love Affair with Politics: A Portrait of Marion Dewar." All three spin-off films are relatively short (10-27 minutes) and would lend themselves to use in classes or club meetings, and, like the other films, develop the theme that despair is not an appropriate response to a nuclear world, action is, and "ordinary" people can make a difference. (A list of films by Studio D and 17 references are appended.) (MM)
