Until there is peace, is a movie that was directed by Melonie Kastman and produced by Lynn Zekanis. The documentary aims to show the important role that UN Peacekeeping missions play to foster peace with a particular highlight of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The one hour thirty-five minutes documentary had the guests glued with silence as they watched, and later had a very educative and interactive question and answer session which resulted in UNIC Lusaka staff explaining more about the works of the UN Peacekeepers as most of the guests only after watching the movie did they appreciate the efforts of the peacekeepers.

Meanwhile, Colonel Rex Mwenda a member of the Zambia Scouts Association emphasised that UNIC Lusaka needs to host more of such events, so that many Zambians can see and commend the UN Peacekeepers for the job well done in filling up the loopholes in war torn countries to eradicate conflict.
