A clip from the opening of the 35 min. documentary Peaceful Warriors: on the road with Vets for Peace, directed by Deacon Warner.
Peaceful Warriors' chronicles a 2010 bus trip by a group of Veterans for Peace to the School of the Americas protest at the gates of Fort Benning. The experience is seen through the eyes of Jill and Lorenzo, two high school filmmakers who accompanied the group on its annual journey from Minnesota to Columbus, Georgia.
The Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, better known by its former name, School of the Americas, has had a controversial role in training Latin American military personnel. The two high school students set out on the trip mostly intent on visiting a warmer climate for a weekend but by the end of the four-day journey the perspectives of both young filmmakers is radically changed.
