Plot: Radio Prayer documents a United State encountered through footage recorded during two cross country road trips. Radio broadcasts heard throughout the piece place the viewer in the not-too-distant past of the winter of 2004. At this time, the United States is fully engaged in Iraq and there are widespread concerns over the possibility of terrorist attacks during the Christmas holidays. The Protagonist must navigate a shifting landscape of competing referents - from unabashed consumerism, ubiquitous pop culture and historical appropriation, to nature's neutrality towards human endeavors. In spite of the fundamentalist bias and political paranoia promulgated in many of the broadcasts, there is also hope for peace from more sensible voices reaching our through the airwaves—Anonymous
