Event Details


During the late 1960s and early 1970s, resistance to the American war in Vietnam grew substantially. Hundreds of thousands of draft age men refused to cooperate with the draft. This is the first documentary to profile this intense period of personal and collective acts of nonviolent resistance, as many risked arrest, overloading federal courts and eventually forcing an end to both conscription and the war. Directed by SLO Film Fest alum, Judith Ehrlich (Daniel Ellsberg: The Most Dangerous Man in America) and featuring well-known activists and personalities including Joan Baez, Daniel Ellsberg, David Harris and Randy Kehler.
