BLUE HILL — Peninsula Peace & Justice will screen the documentary “The War At Home” on Friday, October 25, 7 p.m., at Blue Hill Library. First released in 1979, The War at Home was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary and went on to win top awards at the Sundance Film Festival and the Chicago International Film Festival, just a few years after the war in Vietnam came to an end. Restored in 2018 by Catalyst Media, it is now showing around the country.
The film reveals how the Antiwar Movement grew from a small group of student activists in the sixties to become the biggest U.S. protest movement of the 20th century.
Michael Moore has called it “one of the best documentaries ever made.”
Vietnam veteran and member of Veterans for Peace Dud Hendrick of Deer Isle will lead a discussion following the film.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Fmi: 326-4405.
