Where Will You Hide?
1948 ----- color ----- 20 min ----- 16mm
Publisher: Audiographic Institute.
Part of the UW Libraries' Vintage 16mm Film Collection

Summary: Bold animated drawings and a dramatic soundtrack provide background for narrators who argue that World War III is looming and, as such, world civilization is in danger. They contend that peace is our only alternative, an alternative we must all work towards.

Quote from the film: "...we have not learned how to get along with our neighbors: man with man, or nation with nation. After nearly 2,000 years of the Christian era we seek justice through slaughter and expect good to emerge good from the reeking wreckage of war. This is your problem, and mine. All over the world man gives lip service to peace. It is so easy to say the right things, but only a pitiful minority is willing to pay the price of peace with the only coin of which to buy it: study, understanding, thought, and action. Peace is everyone's business. It doesn't just happen. Either you want peace and are willing to work for it or you must be prepared to accept the consequences for your inaction."
