The Peace Patriots                         78 Min.

THE PEACE PATRIOTS is an intimate portrait of
American dissenters reflecting on their personal
participation as engaged citizens in a time of war.
Narrated by Janeane Garofalo.
Filmmaker Robbie Leppzer chronicles the story
of people living in one area of New England who
oppose the U.S. invasion and military occupation
of Iraq. The film follows a diverse group of
individuals, ranging in age from 13 to 74,
including teenagers, college students, teachers,
clergy, and war veterans, as they take part in
vigils, marches, theater performances, and civil
disobedience sit-ins to protest the war.
“In a time of sadness, thinking of the dead and
maimed on both sides, THE PEACE PATRIOTS
gives us hope and inspiration.” —Howard Zinn,
author, A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED
STATES.
