##About the film
From World War II to Vietnam to Afghanistan, the cost of war has been tallied in lives lost and damage done. But the hidden cost?both practical and emotional?can have equally tragic long-term effects. The production and use of weapons and their eventual disposal create a war byproduct that pollutes land, air and water for generations. Radioactive contamination, oil spills, decimated forests and crops all threaten the earth?s ecosystem. Using archival footage and eyewitness interviews while examining conflicts ranging from high-tech bombings in Iraq to low-tech confrontations in Bosnia and the Sudan, filmmakers Alice and Lincoln Day reveal the stress war puts on all of our lives.
After the screening, join filmmakers Alice Day and Lincoln Day, plus Dr. Jeanne Mager Stellman, an environmental researcher with considerable expertise in Agent Orange and other military herbicides, for a panel discussion about issues raised by the film. A reception will follow.
