Martin Sheen presents the epic true story of the daring, controversial and decades-ahead-of-his-time World Citizen #1, Garry Davis. Danny Kaye’s Broadway understudy, Garry was so pained at having bombed a civilian city in World War II that he leapt off the Broadway stage onto the world stage -- taking on border guards, guns and jail – to unite the people of our world. His bold action drew Albert Einstein, John Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and thousands of people to a movement that culminated when the United Nations unanimously passed Eleanor Roosevelt’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights December 10,1948. For the next 65 years, as a citizen of no nation, only the world, Garry Davis continued his effort to inspire we, the people, to take the lead in creating world law to outlaw war, oppression, and the destruction of the environment. When he died at age 91 the New York Times headlined their front page obituary: “Man of No Nation Saw One World of No War.” https://www.theworldismycountry.com/garryinthenews
