Kennedy, Michael Moore, Camille Paglia, Tim Robbins, Susan Sontag and many more comprise a moving and motivating document of the largest simultaneous peace protest in history.

2/15 captures the thoughts and emotions of February 15, 2003 and the 30 million people from around the world who marched, danced, sang, and shook the globe in their opposition to an imminent U.S.-led war against Iraq. As international and diverse as the protests themselves, the images and ideas within 2/15 express opinions and questions which resonate far beyond the Iraq crisis, while preserving the most captivating moments and messages from this historic movement for peace.
