Free Burma Rangers is an epic adventure-doc exploring the extraordinary journey of Dave Eubank — who with his wife Karen and three young children have spent the last two decades living in war zones like Myanmar (formerly Burma), Iraq and Syria, fighting to bring hope through the humanitarian work of the Free Burma Rangers.
A former U.S. Special Forces soldier turned missionary, Dave Eubank is an unlikely hero in the war zones where he serves – a husband and father who has chosen a path few American families would consider. Free Burma Rangers shows the Eubank’s mix of grit, determination and faith providing a peaceful disposition in places that are anything but. And amidst firefights, heroic rescues, and the brokenness embedded in these war-torn countries, the Eubanks are undoubtedly one of the most inspiring families in the world.
Filmmakers Brent Gudgel (Dear Francis, The Ordinance) & Chris Sinclair guide viewers through this emotional and ultimately exhilarating feature documentary by combining footage from the earliest days of the Free Burma Rangers (including adorable scenes of the Eubank children growing up in the jungles of Burma) with their more recent peace-keeping missions in Iraq and Syria — some of the same stories we’re witnessing in the news today.
The Free Burma Rangers were officially founded more than 20 years ago by Dave Eubank, in response to conflict in the nation then known as Burma, and now offers help, hope and love to internally displaced people around the world. In reading through their core principles of loving one another, forgiveness, praying with faith, and acting with courage, Dave Eubank is undoubtedly the toughest missionary you’ll likely ever encounter. Free Burma Rangers is a documentary film experience that challenges the very notion of what it means to be a global citizen and demonstrates how one family has taken “love thy neighbor” to an inspiring new level.
