Director Greta Stocklassa was only eight when the 9/11 attack took place and the "War on Terror" began. In the years that followed, fellow Swede Hans Blix, a UN diplomat who drafted environmental policy and brokered nuclear disarmament agreements, became a central figure in the investigation into weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Whenever the world was on fire, they called Hans Blix. So now, in our 21st century of escalating political extremism, wars, and climate catastrophe, this millennial filmmaker wonders if the 94-year-old retiree has any advice to offer. Sometimes the most innocuous questions beget the most insightful responses, as two very different perspectives collide. Blix, a humble civil servant, is comfortable presenting options, while Stocklassa is looking for heroic solutions. Blix is a realist nearing the end of his life, while Stocklassa is an optimist just beginning hers. With formidable access and conversational ease, Blix Not Bombs interrogates whether diplomacy and negotiation can foster world peace. Angie Driscoll
