BKMC CEO Froehler said about the World Premiere:

“This week, I had the pleasure to be with Former UN Secretary-General and BKMC Co-chair Ban Ki-moon in Berlin for the premiere of the documentary film “The Quiet Diplomat” with Cinema For Peace Foundation Berlin. The amazing team of Charles Lyon did a great job in capturing the life of Ban Ki-moon, growing up during the Korean War and receiving aid from the United Nations to the helm of the United Nations. I am grateful that I am carrying on his legacy with the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens, fostering leadership for the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement.”
