Documents June 12, 1982, a magic day in New York: the largest peace demonstration in history.
An uplifting documentary, it interweaves performers, individual marchers, aerial shots and down-to-earth scenes of the massive gathering when one million people with one voice called for an end to the Cold War nuclear arms race.
Capturing the magical spirit of that day with music, fun, tears, and a dazzling look at a cross-section of concerned humanity, "In Our Hands" is filled with high energy and warm feelings. Even the police were on the side of the demonstrators.
35 years later, with reports of plans for new nuclear weapons, North Korea threats and Iran developments, "In Our Hands" reminds us of how people responded, and may serve as a role model for those who dare to raise questions today.

Richter says he just tried to show the Peace Movement and the Freeze Campaign for what it is. Looking back on it from 2012, what's portrayed in this film stands out like a mountain-sized diamond in an otherwise bleak landscape.
For those of you who remember these times--the zeitgeist--it will bring you right back to the warm sense of energy, excitement and love that permeated our culture (or at least, a large part of it). If you're too young to remember those days, you will see something that's been lost -- a faith -- a connectedness -- that we must all strive now to recreate together, before it's too late.
