A GRAFFITI ARTIST, A RURAL NURSE, and
AN EDUCATION PIONEER
take peace-building into their own hands.

A Chance for Peace is a documentary film that shows what can happen when we refuse to give in to hate and choose peace instead. Following Kenya’s post-election violence of 2007, three unsung heroes emerged. One, a vagabond street artist turned peace messenger; the second, a rural clinic nurse turned medical marvel; and the third, a Maasai pioneer in education transforming the future of his community literally from the ground up.

When it seems like it would be enough to accept peace as the absence of violence, the men, women, and children in this film challenge that definition, stand up, and say, “We can do better”. Collectively, they challenge the preconceived notions of Africa as hopeless and desperate and create a new identity of hope and action by will and faith alone. But with entire communities relying on them, how sustainable can it be? Director Tyler Batson travels from the slums of Nairobi to the flatlands of Maasailand to find out.
