“peace starts with me” is a new annual PUMA.Peace project. This year, seven international artists and filmmakers, ranging from world-renowned award-winning artists to recent graduates, created 30 to 90 second films based on the idea that “peace starts with me”.

Bill Porter grew up on the isolated, wind-swept coast of North Cornwall. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art, in 2008, he now works as an animator/director in London and has screened at various animation festivals and galleries around the world.  Porter explains his video: “Two fighters face one another in the ring, surrounded by spectators in masquerade. The bell sounds and the fighters jump into action. The spectators become more and more frenzied as the blows get harder and the fighters less guarded. Finally they peak and, exhausted, slump into one another—a moment of peace.”  Discover the six other films via www.peace.puma.com.
