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 an 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.
