Film Library

Films that change lives

Many people have one—a film that caught you at the right moment in your life and changed everything.

Paul Shannon remembers seeing footage of children being napalmed in Vietnam, and of U.S. soldiers throwing away their medals. These films were his introduction to the antiwar movement in the 1970s; in the decades since, his life’s work has been teaching about and working with social change movements.
