Kenya's post-election violence was characterized as "another African ethnic cleansing" and as a "tribal conflict," but do the tensions run deeper than this narrow, dismissive summation? A Chance for Peace gives Kenyan's the opportunity to tell their side of the story honoring those risking their lives to promote peace of all kinds - from a nurse-turned-medical marvel, to graffiti artists and Maasai education pioneers. When it seems like it would be enough to accept peace as the absence of violence, the men, women, and children in this film redefine the traditionally accepted, narrowly defined notions of Kenyans and Africans in general, creating hope by will and faith alone.
When your past is wrought with inequality and when your present is threatened, what will you do to create a better future for you and your community? A Chance for Peace tackles this question head-on.
