A FILM FOR THE PEOPLE
What originally started off as “an idea for a video” to give voice to the media’s misrepresentation of Kenyans during complex political times, A Chance for Peace has grown into a mission to stand up, not just for people, but for peace itself. Through 10 years of immersive experiences and research surrounding the practice of peace, Tyler has traveled over 50,000 miles from the US to Kenya, Egypt, Thailand, India, Germany, and Turkey to tell this story. But after receiving little response from the film industry, it became clear: this is a story for the people. And as crises erupts throughout the planet, A Chance for Peace serves as proof that peace is possible.
THE ACFP IMPACT
A Chance for Peace is more than a film. It is now being used as a teaching tool to promote and sustain peace in Kenya and here in the U.S. A Chance for Peace hosts public screenings of the film paired with local dance, music, talks, and theatre performances centered around creating peace that is sustainable. Peace should be made public, and the youth and gang leaders we have targeted so far need our continued guidance and encouragement to spread the message into the next generation.
