"The World is My Country"

The epic true story of the daring, controversial and decades-ahead-of-his-time "World Citizen #1" Garry Davis. The film reveals how Danny Kaye's understudy leapt off Broadway stage and onto the World Stage in 1948 - triggering a people-power movement which precipitated unanimous passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Albert Einstein hailed Garry for "the sacrifices he has made for the well-being of humanity." Buckminster Fuller extolled him as "the new world man." And amazingly, Eleanor Roosevelt challenged him to start "a worldwide international government." Martin Sheen calls his story "a roadmap to a better future" because it points the way to how people-power can now give us a saner way to run our world.
