HIDDEN BATTLES is an intimate and powerful documentary about what it means to kill another human being during war, as told by five men and women who have pulled the trigger.
For soldiers there is no clean break between the past of war and the present, and each deals with killing in his or her own unique way. HIDDEN BATTLES shows five ways in which this act is integrated into five different lives. Ultimately these stories testify to the resilience of the human spirit and hopefulness for the future.
We present it on Memorial Day, a day of remembrance and recognition of those who have died in wars.
Free and open to the public.
Potluck at 6:30 pm; 65-minute film at 7 pm.
Discussion following the film will include reflections on the meaning of Memorial Day from peace advocacy, religious, and veterans’ perspectives—including yours.
Sponsored by Peace Action Montgomery, Veterans for Peace, Pax Christi St. Francis, and UUCR/Social Justice Committee.
