'The 5 Powers is a moving fusion of documentary footage, historic montage and vivid animation that send a powerful message of peace. Using modern technology and dramatic storytelling, the film focuses on three true heroes and their non-violent re-solution of conflict through a mind-ful, compassionate approach. Its beautifully crafted and truly inspiring' - Dave Gibbons, Graphic Novel Artist (Watchmen, Green Lantern), June 2014. The 5 Powers, narrated by Sleepy Hollow Star, Orlando Jones, addresses timeless issues that are being replayed worldwide today in the Middle East and at home in the USA, revealing the interconnected stories of Superheroes of Peace. The powerful story of Vietnamese Zen masters, Thich Nhat Hanh, whom Martin Luther King nominated for the 1967 Nobel Peace Prize, Sister Chan Khong and American anti-war superhero, Alfred Hassler, and Martin Luther King Jr, is as relevant and important today as it ever was in the past. One of the films big surprises, is Alfred Hasslers 1958, Montgomery Story comic book that turned Martin Luther King Jr, into a Superhero. A comic book that was distributed in the turbulent south, to young and old, African Americans and white Americans. As the film tells the story of seemingly unstoppable violence, it also communicates an ultimate truth. There is no good or bad, no white or black. This ultimate truth has the power to unite us. The 5 Powers film makers have also extended the narrative of the movie across various mobile, tablet and physical platforms, including an all new, The 5 Powers, Augmented Reality print comic book, T-shirt and film poster, and ibook.
