    STOP THE WAR FILM SCREENING:
    THE GROUND TRUTH~THE HUMAN COST OF WAR

    Sunday, March 18 ~ 2:00pm
    Downtown Salt Lake City Library Auditorium
    200 East 400 South

    THE GROUND TRUTH stunned filmgoers at the 2006 Sundance and Nantucket Film Festivals. Hailed as “powerful” and “quietly unflinching,” Patricia Foulkrod’s searing documentary feature includes exclusive footage that will stir audiences. The filmmaker’s subjects are patriotic young Americans – ordinary men and women who heeded the call for military service in Iraq – as they experience recruitment and training, combat, homecoming, and the struggle to reintegrate with families and communities. The terrible conflict in Iraq, depicted with ferocious honesty in the film, is a prelude for the even more challenging battles fought by the soldiers returning home ? with personal demons, an uncomprehending public, and an indifferent government. As these battles take shape, each soldier becomes a new kind of hero, bearing witness and giving support to other veterans, and learning to fearlessly wield the most powerful weapon of all – the truth.
    (Read more at The Ground Truth) Following the film there will be a roundtable discussion with all present on the film itself, the current state of affairs, and what we as citizens in Utah can do.
