Today, the Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced, but director Errol Morris is using this time for reflection. Once again teaming up with The New York Times, he’s created three new short documentary films focusing on past Nobel winners Leymah Gbowee and Lech Walesa, and nominee Bob Geldof.
Each doc shares the activists’ stories, detailing Gbowee’s role as one of the driving forces in ousting Liberian dictator Charles G. Taylor and Walesa’s battles for labor rights in Soviet controlled Poland, leading to the downfall of the Soviet Union. And then there’s rock star Bob Geldof, behind one of biggest charity efforts ever, Live Aid in 1985, which sought to eliminate famine in Ethiopia.
These are all incredible, inspiring stories, so check out “The Dream,” “The Shipyward,” and “The Moment” below.
