“There’s nothing magic about change,” I was told by Jody Williams, the founder of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. “You have to get off your ass and take action.”
I’m not trying to make any wild claims that I now have all the answers, but I have been blessed by the opportunity to convey some of the answers to others who care about the world our children will know. We’re all in this together red and blue, East and West, black and white, right or wrong.
Nobelity has been a long and rewarding journey for me, and my motivation to carry the messages entrusted to me by nine brilliant Nobel laureates could not be higher. Shortly before I finished editing the film, Sir Joseph Rotblat passed away at age 97. A few weeks later, Rick Smalley lost his long and brave battle against cancer. They are no longer with us, but their work and their passion for life will live on in all who have known them, and in all who see them in Nobellity. The lessons they conveyed to me are an essential part of this film, and I am so honored to be able to share my time with them.
