Join us for an evening with Nyunt Than, President and Co-Founder of the Burmese American Democratic Alliance (BADA) as he shares with us a short documentary film “Prayer of Peace: Relief & Resistance in Burma's War Zones” (2007).

Mr. Than was born and educated in Burma. He left the country after the 1988 pro-democracy uprising and since 2001 has been advocating for democracy and freedom for Burma.

The documentary follows ethnic front-line relief workers as they aid internally displaced people suffering under the Burma Army. Focusing on a female medic and a pastor/human rights cameraman, the film reveals a people that have maintained their dignity and hope for peace despite the odds. Filmed on relief missions with the Free Burma Rangers.
