Made with official permission from the US Army, filmed in state-of-the-art High Definition video, "Soldiers of Conscience" includes never-before-seen footage of basic training and the war in Iraq, and interviews with a West Point teacher and several Conscientious Objectors exploring the ethics and morality of war. This provocative film tackles questions of the war, peace, and the human conscience.
Well-known author and Vietnam Special Forces Veteran Tobias Wolff will lead the discussion following the film. Co-director/co-producer Catherine Ryan will also be present for the screening and available for Q&A.
