Errol Morris’s ‘United in Rivalry’ campaign for VISA out of BBDO New York aired during the FIFA 2014 world cup games and features Nobel Peace Prize laureates: Leymah Gbowee, Sir Bob Geldof and Lech Walesa- getting fired-up as they talk about their respective soccer teams. Morris took the campaign a step further, directing three short films about peace. Each film highlights an inspiring moment in the lives of the Nobel Peace Prize winners. The results are three thought provoking films that show the possibilities of what one determined person can do. The shorts premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and were part of the award winning New York Times op-docs series.
