Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan
EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS OF THE OCCUPATIONS
HELP MAKE A NEW FILM AND A DIFFERENT FUTURE
This year, a scrappy, determined band of soldiers and veterans turned this country on its head.
On March 13-16, Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) held Winter Soldier/Iraq and Afghanistan in Washington, DC. Over one hundred active duty soldiers and veterans publicly testified—from their own experience–about what they consider to be the immoral and illegal nature of those wars. They demanded immediate and unconditional withdrawal, and intend to force this issue onto the national stage.
Displaced Films and Northern Light Productions are producing the only documentary film that will be made about this historic moment, and the intense battle leading up to it. If you liked Sir! No Sir! you will love this new film. Winter Soldier/Iraq and Afghanistan will answer the question “Can a new GI Movement happen today?” with a resounding “Yes!”
The Winter Soldier Investigation was by any account a powerful, explosive, and controversial antiwar event, timed to mark the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq five years ago. No one who witnessed it could come out the same. But just as importantly, it transformed everyone involved in profound and unexpected ways. That transformation, both large-scale and deeply personal, is the subject we explore in our film.
