Be the Change You Wish to See in the World -Gandhi

May 12, 2006, Thousand Oaks, CA -We have come to the crossroads that will change the future. If you could ask today’s greatest minds about the world’s most pressing problems, if you could discover what kind of world will be left for our children and grandchildren… you would have the new documentary motion picture from monterey media. You would have Nobelity.

Nobelity combines the insights of nine distinguished Nobel Laureates with a first-person view of world problems and the children who are most affected by them. Follow award-winning filmmaker Turk Pipkin's expedition to find answers to the world’s toughest questions as he travels across the United States, and in France, England, India and Kenya. The Distinguished Laureates of Nobelity include Desmond Tutu (Nobel Peace Prize, 1984.) and Sir Joseph Rotblat, (Nuclear Physicist & Disarmament Activist - Nobel Peace Prize, 1995). Tutu talks about the power of love and forgiveness, and the human capacity to accomplish great things; Rotblat, a contemporary of Einstein, who fifty years ago co-signed a letter with Rotblat to the world calling for an end to nuclear proliferation.

In today’s fast-paced, environmentally challenged and industrially driven world, being unconcerned with the gifts of our environment is all too conveniently put aside as we pursue our daily journey. Seeking solutions to the world’s most daunting problems, Pipkin says of his personal journey, “Again and again I learned that the world’s problems are much larger than I’d thought, but I was also learning that there is much reason for hope. The answers are there, but we have to seek them out and act on them in a much more proactive fashion.”

Esquire magazine raves, “Remarkable new film…Nobelity leaves you wanting more and thinking that if Pipkin's nine were in charge, we would leave a better world indeed.”

Join Amnesty International, Habitat for Humanity, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and so many others in their support of this extraordinary motion picture. For more on Nobelity visit: Available on DVD in October, monterey media looks forward to sharing this thought-provoking film with you.

“All of us are searching for solutions and ways to take personal actions to affect change, especially for our children’s future… An Inconvenient Truth raises compelling questions, Nobelity offers compelling answers.” - Christopher Gavigan, CEO / Executive Director, CHEC, Children’s Health Environmental Coalition
