"Military Myths": A 28 minute video that takes a critical look at the military’s promises of travel, money for education and job training. It considers how media representations of war and military life compare to the reality of war told by veterans who have actually been there. Co-produced by WRL’s ROOTS Task Force and Paper Tiger Television. (2003) http://warresisters.org

"All That I Can Be": follows the stories of William and Dorian as they embark on separate journeys with the United States Army: one to basic training and the other to a tour of duty in Iraq. Interweaving their experiences with reflections from recruiters, veterans, journalists, anti-war activists, and people on the street, All That I Can Be is at once an intimate portrait and an exploration of the promises and realities of the U.S. military in post-9/11 America. This YO-TV (Youth Organizers Television) documentary offers insight into the lives of young people making their way in a society in which joining the military seems to be their best or only option. A production of Educational Video Center, NYC, 22 minutes. (2005) http://www.evc.org
