About the Movie
A Towering Task is a documentary film that tells the Peace Corps story through powerful interviews with host country nationals, volunteers and staff, and scholars and journalists who put the story of the Peace Corps into context. Voices from all over the world share not only the work and impact, but also the challenges, of half a century of peacebuilding and diplomacy. You can find more information about the movie here.
