Overview

For this 90-minute PBS documentary, filmmaker David Grubin, armed with a mini-DVD camera, followed the daily routine of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan from October 2001 to May 2002. Annan is shown dispensing diplomacy in matters pertaining to the crises in Afghanistan and East Timor; he is also seen accepting the coveted Nobel Peace Prize. In a lighter moment, the Secretary General trades quips with the Muppet cast of Sesame Street. Kofi Annan: Center of the Storm made its first TV appearance just as pressure was mounting on the UN to sanction a preemptive military action against Iraq.
