“SuperHeroes of Peace” – Thich Nhat Hanh/Martin Luther King Jr./Sister Chan Khong/Alfred HasslerComic Book, Graphic Novel & Interactive Movie Creation App on IndieGoGo!January 10, 2014 DarlingDork No comments
3 Superheroes of Peace use THE 5 POWERS to Change The Course of World History, Planting Seeds Of Peace Deep in The Mud Of War
NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — 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, 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.
In conjunction with The Secret of The 5 Powers first public premiere at The Odeon Theater in Florence Italy this month, they have just launched a campaign to create an “Augmented Reality” 128 Page Graphic Novel, The Secret of The 5 Powers, starring Thich Nhat Hanh and a mega-cool “SuperHeroes Of Peace” Interactive iOS, Web and Android Movie Creation App that you have a chance to Star in! www.indiegogo.com/projects/superheroes-of-peace
The Secret of The 5 Powers is an Animated Feature Documentary starring Thich Nhat Hanh, Alfred Hassler (The Creator of the MLK Montgomery Story Comic Book), Sister Chan Khong and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
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.
One of the film’s big surprises is the largely unknown comic book that turned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. into a Superhero.
Their IndieGoGo Campaign offers exclusive donor prizes, i.e. a pre-release online screening of the film; desktop and mobile wallpaper downloads; the film soundtrack; artist and director signed 1st edition limited collectible 5 Powers comic cooks; Montgomery Story comic books; limited organic T-Shirts; one-of-a-kind art, original film, comic sketches; and the opportunity to appear as an extra, featured extra, co-star or star in the SuperHeroes of Peace movie app.
They are donating up to 8% of their campaign’s net proceeds to The Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation‘s Deer Park Monastery Nunnery Project.
