The Bougainville Civil War erupted when Bougainvilleans rose up against the might of the Australia-owned Panguna copper mine, which had destroyed their environment, taken their land, and divided the people.

After 10 years of war, 14 failed peace agreements and 20,000 people dead, New Zealand stepped in with an unorthodox yet unprecedented style of peacekeeping. Taking guitars instead of guns, they were able to bring the warring parties together with music and cultural connection.

With hundreds of hours of interviews, and spectacular newsreel archive footage spanning over seventy years distilled into one movie, Soldiers Without Guns is the inspirational story of a tiny island holding on to hope for independence and for peace, beset on all sides by corporate interests, colonial oppression, state violence, and civil war.
