Image of Peacekeepers

An all-female, Bangladeshi unit of UN peacekeepers leaves their friends, families, and familiarity behind for deployment abroad in Haiti.

Peacekeepers examines how this journey forever alters their lives while illuminating the unique role that women play in restoring peace in the world’s most volatile regions. The film follows three female UN peacekeepers through the challenges of the unit’s mission in Haiti. The documentary poses the question: are women key to lasting conflict resolution and peace building – and at what cost or benefit to themselves, their families, those they impact on the ground, and the traditional structure of the communities from which they come?
