Taking their name from the words of the Fellowship of Reconciliation´s legendary peacemaker, A.J. Muste, “There is no way to peace, peace is the way,” Peace Is The Way Films (www.peaceisthewayfilms.com), in cooperation with globally renowned Zen Master, poet and peacemaker Thich Nhat Hanh, is using the medium of film to create a more compassionate world, to confront bullying, to foster compassion, healing and reconciliation, and to educate teachers, young people and families in the way of peace.
The Secret of the 5 Powers addresses timeless, yet contemporary issues, weaving powerfully illustrated comic book animation, historic documents and modern film footage into an entertaining, inspiring, heart-touching story.
Through the experiences of the film’s protagonists: Alfred Hassler, an American anti-war superhero; Vietnamese peace activist Sister Chan Khong; and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, who Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967, the audience is confronted with a variety of challenging and complex issues – self-immolation, conscientious objection, nonviolent resistance and an unwavering compassion for all those who suffered during the war.
