Between 1965-1973, over 50,000 Americans made their way to Canada, refusing to participate in the Vietnam War. Forty years later, Canada has another moral choice – whether to give refuge to U.S. veterans of the Iraq War. Caught between two countries, today’s war resisters fight the law, politics, and the court of public opinion for the opportunity to remain in Canada.
A Q&A with the filmmakers will follow the screening.
The 2016 Vermont Filmmakers’ Showcase is underwritten by the Grace Jones Richardson Trust with additional funding from Ben & Jerry Scoop Shops and a grant from the Arts Council of Vermont.
