Film on war tax resistance in rural Massachusetts
BLUE HILL — Peninsula Peace & Justice will screen the documentary An Act of Conscience on Friday, March 29, 7 p.m., at Blue Hill Library. Considered one of the all-time great anti-war movies, the 1997 film chronicles the fascinating, affecting five-year struggle of a Massachusetts couple to resist the seizure of their home due to their refusal to pay federal taxes for 14 years.
Narrated by Martin Sheen, this documentary features Father Daniel Berrigan and Pete Seeger. United States historian Howard Zinn says this film’s story “should serve as an inspiration to young people today in suggesting how one can live one’s life in defiance of the violence around us.”
The film is open to the public and free, refreshments included. For info call 374-2357.
