Christy and I are tremendously excited about the release of One Peace at a Time. While Nobelity focused on global problems, the new film looks at solutions that are already working, and that could be amplified all over the world. The film asks one very big question - can we provide basic rights – water, nutrition, education, healthcare, opportunity and a sustainable and peaceful environment – to every child on earth?

The solutions I found on five continents had some inspiring Austin connections, including the model Indian orphanages of The Miracle Foundation and water projects in Ethiopia with A Glimmer of Hope. For a sneak preview of the water story in the film, check out our latest edition of Short Film/Big Changes, which is called A Glimmer of Hope!

See you April 14 at the Paramount - or if you can step up big-time for the nonprofit, at the museum.

About Me

My photo
People know me from different things I've done, and often seem to remember me from whatever I was doing when our paths first crossed. If you first saw me on television with Harry Anderson or doing stand-up comedy, you may be disappointed in my current level of funny. On the other hand, if you first saw me as that idiot narcoleptic guy in The Sopranos, I could really use a nap, so I'm still playing that part well. The last few years have been occupied by making three feature docs, Nobelity, One Peace at a Time, and Building Hope. All three were produced by our education and action nonprofit, The Nobelity Project ( I've also written ten books of fiction and nonfiction, most recently the NY Times bestseller, The Tao of Willie, co-authored with the very awesome Willie Nelson.
