Gold Leaf Film Series [1]: “Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam”

April 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5
University of Maine at Farmington Farmington, ME United States

This HBO special is as close to a “balanced” perspective as we’ll get.  It really is Burns and Novicks before they even thought about their film.  I think it’s brilliant — all of it comes from letters written home by soldiers, nurses, reporters as they wandered through the muck of that war; all letters read by professional actors (you’ll recognize their names); and all of it with one of the most amazing musical soundtracks you’ll ever hear.  Running time: 84…

Gold Leaf Film Series [2]: Hearts and Minds

May 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
University of Maine at Farmington Farmington, ME United States

This 1974 Academy Award- winning documentary, directed by Maine resident Peter Davis, is called “excruciatingly brilliant” by Paul Zimmerman of NEWSWEEK and touted by the New York TIMES as “…the most all-encompassing records of the American civilization ever put into one film.” Loaded with interviews of the same people that Novicks interviewed plus more, including Daniel Ellsberg (another Veterans For Peace member, by the way).  And, of course, the iconic images of that war.  Spectacular.  Running time: 112 minutes GOLD…

Gold Leaf Film Series [3]: “Winter Soldier”

May 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
University of Maine at Farmington Farmington, ME United States + Google Map

From the liner notes: “On January 31, 1971 more than 125 Vietnam veterans, representing every major combat unit to see action in the war, gathered at a Howard Johnson’s hotel in Detroit to heal a nation and themselves. They risked everything — their careers, their friendships, their families — to talk about the atrocities they had committed or witnessed in the presence of officers while stationed in Vietnam.  These veterans saw themselves as winter soldiers battling against the wrongs of…

Gold Leaf Film Series [4]: Sir! No Sir!

May 17, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
University of Maine at Farmington Farmington, ME United States

This documentary captures the vibrant GI anti-war movement that many claim was instrumental in ending the war. This film does four things: 1) Brings to life the history of the GI movement through the stories of those who were part of it; 2) Reveals the explosion of defiance that the movement gave birth to with never-before-seen archival material; 3) Explores the profound impact that movement had on the military and the war itself; and 4) also tells the story of…

Gold Leaf Film Series [5]: “Joan Baez: How Sweet the Sound”

May 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
University of Maine at Farmington Farmington, ME United States

The final film is a real knock-out that I love showing to my students in Peace Studies.  Not only is Baez a remarkable singer and performer, but she is also one of the premier activists in our country’s history.  Think about it — at the age of 22 she is on the cover of TIME magazine for her iconic presence on the revitalizing folk music stage.  So what does she do?  She joins the civil rights movement before most people…

Save the Date: My Lai exhibit in Chapel Hill March 14-16

March 14 - March 16

The My Lai Memorial Exhibit honors the Vietnamese who died in their American War. The exhibit is a strong response to the Pentagon’s on-going campaign to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. The Pentagon’s campaign attempts to sanitize our unnecessary, unjust, and immoral military actions in Vietnam and promote our Forever Wars today. For more information on the exhibit, go to https://mylaimemorial.org/   As part of its 2018-19 national tour, the exhibit will be coming to Chapel Hill,…
