Surviving the Peace / MediaStorm and the Mines Advocacy Group
 
MAG (Mines Advisory Group) works in over 35 countries around the world to remove land mines, bombs and other weapons that remain from conflict situations.

MediaStorm was commissioned by MAG to create a documentary that profiled their work, but more importantly created a strong, compelling case for the problem they are trying to solve and the impact it has on the local population. Laos, being the most heavily bombed country in history, was chosen as the country that would best represent MAG’s work.
MediaStorm’s approach was to first and foremost create an intimate, character-driven narrative that focused on those affected most by the problem and then through that narrative tell the story of the work MAG does, giving it a sense of validity and urgency.
Our goal was to take the viewer on a journey through the lives of Laotians personally affected by unexploded ordinance, showing the physical and psychological turmoil they go through on a daily basis, creating a deep sense of care and responsibility in the viewer and ultimately a desire to take action.
