New Release - Prayer of Peace

Choices is pleased to announce our new release, Prayer of Peace: Relief and Resistance in Burma's War Zones.

In Prayer of Peace: Relief and Resistance in Burma's War Zones, filmmaker Matt Blauer sheds new light on the Karen people and their struggle for survival in Burma. Although many in the outside world condemn the country's military government, few are aware that over one million Karen villagers fight to stay alive inside the country's borders.

Blauer illegally crosses the border several times to help local relief workers bring medicine and material aid to those displaced by the Burmese Army. In his journeys, he meets a nurse devoted to assisting escapees following the death of her parents and a pastor/cameraman who documents human rights abuses. With candid interviews and stunning footage of recent events, the film brings a fresh awareness to an often ignored but important issue in this troubled nation.

Official Selection - Amnesty International Film Festival

Prayer of Peace will retail for $99.95 and will be released on May 5th. To learn more and to view a clip please visit
