THE GOOD WAR AND THOSE WHO REFUSED TO FIGHT IT Directed by Judith Ehrlich and Rick Tejada-Flores. Narrated by Ed Asner. THE GOOD WAR AND THOSE WHO REFUSED TO FIGHT IT is the dramatic story of the conscientious objectors (COs) who refused to fight in World War II. As noncombatant medics under fire, medical guinea pigs, fire fighters, attendants in mental institutions and workers in Civilian Public Service camps, 37,000 COs performed alternative service during the war. Seven thousand war resisters spent those years in prison and used hunger strikes to racially integrate the federal prison system. Their experiences prepared a generation of nonviolent activists to change American society in ways that we are only now beginning to appreciate. 2001. Video. 60 minutes. ***SPECIAL GUESTS*** One of the directors and an associate producer will be in the audience to answer questions after the screening. New College Cultural Center, 766 Valencia Street. 8:00 pm.
