Interviews with My Lai Veterans
 by Joseph Strick, (USA, 1971 22 minutes)

Clean Thursday
 by Aleksandr Rastorguev (Russia, 2002, 45 minutes)

This fall kino21's five program series, How We Fight: Conscripts, Mercenaries, Terrorists and Peacekeepers, presents international works that explore soldiering and depict the experience of war from the point of view of fighters on the ground.

The series continues with two films portraying the words and worlds of conscripted soldiers. Tonight is a study in opposites, on one hand frank questions about slaughter in Interviews with My Lai Veterans and on the other, poetic and ironic observation on fighters' repose in Clean Thursday. But these films share an unflinching ear and eye for the soldiers who have fought on the ground in two of the world's most powerful armies.

All screenings take place at Artists' Television Access in San Francisco. For more information on this program see ATA's calendar.
