Inderjit Kaur Khalsa, 2017, 60 min
War/Peace introduces radical student activists from the late 60s. Ex-leaders of the Weather Underground movement Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are controversial characters in the United States based on public opinion. These days the world is changing and nobody can predict what is to come. This film is an exploration of what happened the last time a group of young minds opposed the government in the United States without non-violence. The film is also asking a question; how can we foster change if peaceful protest is not effective and violence only brings more violence? What can we do? With Cathy Wilkerson, Noam Chomsky, Jeremy Varon, Bryan Burrough and Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

Friday, Oct 27th: Q&A with Ex-Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,  former Black Panther and member of the Panther 21, author of “Panther Baby,” director of Chapter and Verse Jamal Joseph, and War/Peace director Inderjit Kaur Khalsa.
