The Next Film Screening

There are several documentaries out that could offer food for thought. Since ZEITGEIST was the catalyst for so many people on March 15th, and I had never heard of it before, I'm looking forward to seeing what the group chooses for the next screening. Please post a comment to this entry with your film suggestions.

Here are some of mine:
Persepolis - a new animated film about the 1979 Iranian Revolution, appropriate both historically and politically. More.

Operation Homecoming - Writing the Wartime Experience.

"Any country that sends only it's young to war, deserves to loose, both its young and the war." - SGGT Edward Parker Gyokeres

"I was walking through the Garden of Eden with an M-16, and I had to ask, what am I doing here?" - Conscientious Objector, Kevin Benderman

Watch Soldiers of Conscience.
Eight US Soldiers today face the most difficult decision of their lives: to kill or not to kill.
A film about ware, peace, and the transformative power of the human conscience.
Their country asked them to kill. Their hearts asked them to stop.
Four sincere war fighters and four sincere conscientious objectors (CO), all struggling over the question.
Made with the official permission from the U.S. Army, this film transcends the usual divisive rhetoric of politics and instead reveals a surprising shared truth. All our soldiers are "soldiers of conscience" torn between the demands of duty and the call of conscience.

And here is a new film being screened in Los Angeles.

Never Forget

Building 7 WTC 2001
