Too many critical questions surround the war in Afghanistan that only  
public debate and Congressional oversight hearings can answer.

Rethink Afghanistan is a ground-breaking, full-length documentary  
focusing on the key issues surrounding this war. Diverse testimony,  
including a unique segment presenting many women of Afghanistan,  
covers both problems and solutions, while graphic footage of civilian  
casualties from U.S. air strikes illustrates why military force is  
ineffective at solving Afghanistan's many problems. Hear from  
veterans of the war as they testify to Congress about facts on the  
                                        all shows 7-9pm
Tue. 8/25 Frontier Cafe - Brunswick
Wed. 8/26 Railroad Sq. Cinema - Waterville
Thu. 8/27 Colonial Theater - Belfast

A panel discussion will follow the film and invite Q&A from the  
audience. Jake Dilliberto, a Marine veteran and member of Vets for  
Rethink Afghanistan, will join Nathan Havey of Brave New Foundation  
and local peace activists on the panel. Both Maine's senators and  
reps have also been invited to the panel.
