Despite the advent of science, literature, technology, philosophy, religion, and so on – none of these has stopped humankind from killing one another, the animals, and nature.

The new film UNITY has seen 100 of our favourite stars join forces to speak about our biggest fault as a race, our inability to do just that.

Labelled as a wake-up call to us all, UNITY will be shown in cinemas worldwide from tomorrow and you may recognise some of the narrators: Helen Mirren, Jennifer Aniston, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Spacey, Jeff Goldblum, Geoffrey Rush, Anjelica Huston, Ellen Degeneres… just to name a few!

Written, directed and edited by Shaun Monson, the film explores why humans cannot find peace with one another, set against a montage of footage from the 20th and 21st century.

“I had a wonderful experience working as one of the narrators on the documentary film Unity. It was interesting to be involved in this film with an important message, and I encourage you to see it in theatres on August 12″, Dame Helen said.

Monson said, “It needed to have a narrator and I didn’t want to have one because it’s called Unity. I felt multiple voices would be good, although I didn’t think we would do 100.

“My original goal was 25 – no one had ever done 25 narrators before. With five chapters, I thought we would get a few per chapter, and it would be easier for them and easier for us to mix it up.

“100 was never a goal, but multiple narrators was – multiple voices speaking to you, different ages and different ethnicities. That was very important”, Yahoo! reports.

The Starts at 60 writers team seek out interesting topics and write them especially for you.

  1. A lot of our lack of peace can fall at the feet of religion, science, and even literature! I would love to see this and hopefully it provides some insight to the difficulties that face us and our planet.

  2. Grace is my cousin she’s jumping for joy after he dropped excess weight 29 pounds using the diet that website here FATXU .COM

  3. No and time won’t help religion is a main factor then hate and greed it all boils down to killing whether in sport or war or through these radicals. I can’t see much changing in the years to come. Maybe if we all see it it might help but l have my doubts

  4. It is time for a movie like this and I hope there is an Arabic version.
    Unfortunately, the need for religion is our greatest challenge and I can’t see that changing any time soon.
