Screening of Where Soldiers Come From
"A coming-of-age story, part American Graffiti (without the music), part The Hurt Locker (without the melodrama)… full of telling details." Tom Jacobs, Miller-McCune "Quietly devastating… In its compassionate, modest gaze, the real cost of distant political decisions is softly illuminated, as well as the shame of a country with little to offer its less fortunate young people than a ticket to a battlefield." Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
Where Soldiers Come From is a prelude to: Windows and Mirrors: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan: A traveling mural exhibit of 25 large scale paintings by artists from all over the country that memorialize Afghan civilian casualties. This AFSC sponsored exhibit will be on display at The Des Moines Social Club, October 15th through October 19th. See www.afsc\iowa.org for programming details.
Sponsored by American Friends Service Committee: AFSC's work is based on the Quaker belief
in the worth of every person and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice.
