Steven Seagal meets
May 4, 2006
Bucharest - Romania
American action-movie star Steven Seagal
met a group of children from an orphanage to promote the campaign "Be Intelligent, Not Violent!" initiated by the Bucharest
police. According to a press release, the ten children were invited by the actor to attend the shooting of several scenes
from the film "Enemy of the Unseen," Seagal's latest action flick, which is being filmed in Romania. Seagal, an actor who
has mainly played in violent movies and is also known for his skills in martial arts, said his intention was to prove to children
that the "fights" in the movies are not real and that violence is always defeated by intelligence.
The photos of the American actor and the children will be used in the production
of educational material for students and posted on the campaign's Web site www.stopviolentainscoli.ro.
"Be Intelligent Not Violent!" was launched by the
Bucharest Police and the Bucharest School Inspectorate and is aimed at deterring violence in schools. The initiators of the
campaign want to involve as many public figures as possible in the fight against school violence.
