According to TV evangelist Pat Robertson: “In a free society, the police and the military are God’s special envoys.” This program highlights the horrors of conflict in a collective call to peace; sharing images of the people on the frontline fighting other people’s wars, and those who rise up and refuse to conform to state control. Animation techniques are employed in all of the films to reflect on war and unrest in vibrant, exuberant, and illuminating ways. This screening of films curated by Abigail Addison is part of the Exuberant Politics series, which is co-sponsored by the Obermann Center.
