Dirty Wars Comes to Baltimore on July 26


By davidswanson - Posted on 25 July 2013

The amazing anti-war film Dirty Wars is coming to the Charles Theater in Baltimore this Friday.

I've been working, on behalf of the producers, with peace groups around the country to spread the word about this film, and the feedback has been incredibly encouraging.  I've led discussions at the conclusion of the film in DC and Norfolk and Charlottesville.

I'll be leading a Q&A following the 7:10 p.m. screening on Friday July 26 in Baltimore at the Charles Theater, 1711 North Charles Street, 410-727-FILM.

Dirty Wars may be one of the best educational outreach opportunities the peace movement has had in a long time.  The film is about secretive aspects of U.S. wars: imprisonment, torture, night raids, drone kills.

Dirty Wars won the Cinematography Award for U.S. Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2013 and the Grand Jury Prize at the Boston Independent Film Festival. Variety calls it "jaw-dropping ... [with] the power to pry open government lockboxes." The Sundance jury said it is "one of the most stunning looking documentaries [we've] ever seen."

Dirty Wars makes a powerful case that U.S. wars, aside from all of their known drawbacks, actually make the United States less safeDirty Wars also makes real the humanity of our wars' victims.  A great deal of activism has been generated by this film. 

Please bring people to see the movie who have not been actively engaged in trying to end warmaking.  The discussion afterwards will be open to questions and comments from any and all points of view.
