Go see the film, and use it to change the debate.
This Friday, September 21st 2007, Oscar award winning director and writer Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby) releases his new movie, In the Valley of Elah (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478134/). The movie, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Susan Sarandon, is about soldiers returning home from Iraq and the psychological effects they endure once they return. It is a stunning anti war film which will have a profound impact on anyone that watches it.
When the film enters wide release throughout the US on the 21st, we want to have Kucinich supporters at every theatre in the nation to accomplish four things:
Go see the film – you need to see it to talk about it.
And ... when people are walking out of the theatre ...
Talk to people about the film, how they feel about the war, are they concerned about another war in Iran, do they realize the Neo Conservative Republicans and Democrats have no intention of bringing our soldiers home before the election ...
Hand out literature:
Strength through Peace Doctrine,
Out of Iraq Plan,
Get email addresses of people who want more information on how to change American Foreign Policy and get out of Iraq.
The film will be in theatres for many weeks, but it will be important to get as many supporters out during the initial release as possible.
