This award-winning documentary explores the question every soldier must ask: Is it ever OK to kill another human being? Made with official permission from the US Army, "Soldiers of Conscience" includes never before seen footage of basic training and the war in Iraq, and interviews with a West Point professor and conscientious objectors on the morality of war. It provides a provocative exploration of questions of conscience, war and peace.

Associate Producer Ian Slattery will be available for discussion following.
