Yes, also enjoyed being photographed. There were kids, boys and girls, men and women, nuns and monks, young and old people.

MISSION: StriPEACE — UNBELIEVABLE

Tatyana Gulina (Russia, 30 min)

Producer, showman and women’s ombudsman, Russian Korean Lucky Lee had set himself a global goal: to find peace between 2 belligerent superpowers — Russia and the USA. For that purpose, he spent $1.000.000 of his own savings on producing the first ever anti-war reality show “Make Love Not War”.
Lucky picketed the US Embassy, led “golden tanks of peace” on Times Square in New York, addressed to Hugh Hefner and Mikhail Gorbachyov, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The Media, scared of Lucky’s scope of activity, is boycotting him. Both the media and the politicians realized that Lucky might succeed and did their best to prevent it. But Lucky did not yield to despair and made a movie about filming his anti-war reality show starring all of its heroes.
