A flawed election. A country in conflict. A Chance for Peace.
This relevant and moving documentary follows the stories of 3 unsung heroes in Kenya who take peace-building into their own hands following Kenya's post-election violence that displaced over 600,000 people, killing over two thousand. Solo 7 becomes a "Messenger of Peace" with nothing but a paintbrush, Sister Freda provides free medical care for thousands of injured and ill Kenyans, and Emmanuel creates the peace-makers of tomorrow by building his own school from the ground up. Spanning over 25 years, director Tyler Batson weaves in a salient and emotional autobiography in his exploration for the meaning of peace in times of seemingly insurmountable conflict. Tackling a range of issues from the media misrepresentation of the African continent to the failure of the democratic process, "A Chance for Peace" provides a glimpse into a world that asks us to come together and define peace through the practice of peace itself.
