A Desire To Preserve" ______ this film has the concept of PEACE as its theme. This may be a cliche perhaps. But what really differentiates this documentary is that it is child-centred. The child looks at the " world of violence, hatred, killings warfare and naked aggression and is appalled beyond all limits. A father 's achievements in making a new distructive weapons, are treated with an icy disdaim by the child.
The child's thoughts are articulated the total incomprehensibility of the logic of warfare which dominates the child's thinking is dramatically brought out. The narrow walls of separation of the adult world are beyond their understanding.
The climax of-course is a grim determination of the child to do away with distructive materials like even toys that resemble violence. Every child piles up toys like guns, rockets, pistols and other lethal weapons like toys which are available in their world. This is to avoid a blood-bath and prevent the globe from being pathetically drenched by blood.
The child's message is: We have a desire to preserve the world. They request the adults to give them a whole world, not a torn apart by bullets and bombs.
