Blue Water Entertainment has joined manufactured-on-demand service Allied Vaughn.
Its first release under the new deal is Rooted in Peace on DVD, Blu-ray and CD soundtrack. In the documentary, filmmaker Greg Reitman invites viewers on a journey to take notice of the world we live in, proactively seek ways to find personal and ecological peace, and stop the cycle of violence. The film relies not only on memoir, but also interviews with such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra; music legends Donovan, Mike Love, and Pete Seeger; film director David Lynch; Noble Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire; media mogul Ted Turner; Archbishop Desmond Tutu; green architect William McDonough; and neuroscientist Dan Siegel.
“Blue Water Entertainment tells cinematically compelling, environmentally aware, and empowering stories that make a difference in our world,” according to Allied Vaughn.
The company has a slate of motion pictures, television, documentary, webcasts and development projects.
