Trent's presentation entitled "Waging Peace in a Global World" will address current events, activism, media hypocrisy, and
the responsibility and power people have to create change. She will discuss the interconnections between the unraveling ecosystem, the failing economy, and war in our society.
Trent’s presentation is an increasingly crucial counter-message to the wars on terrorism, drugs, the poor, and the planet. Trent sheds light on the rising resistance and dissent around the world and the hopeful movement towards a more just and sustainable world.
Drawing on nearly a half century of experience as a grassroots organizer, Academy-Award winner Trent brings a rare approach to today’s events. Footage from some of her recent films will accompany her comments.
A seasoned activist and filmmaker, Trent won an Oscar in 1993 for the documentary, “The Panama Deception,” and has both directed and produced other films including “Waging Peace,” “Destination Nicaragua,” and “Coverup: Behind the Iran-Contra Affair.” She has publicly exposed criminal activities at the highest level of government and has been the target of at least three FBI counter-intelligence operations.
