DOCUMENTARY IN PROGRESS
While the war in Vietnam raged on, one of the largest and most successful youth-led resistance movements in American history was growing at home.
Hundreds of thousands of young men opposed to an unjust war said NO to being drafted into the military, risking up to five years in federal prison. Their individual moral courage and collective actions helped end a tragic war and the draft.
Directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Judith Ehrlich, The Boys Who Said NO! will tell for the first time the inspiring story and impact of the Vietnam War draft resistance movement.
Our film is now in post-production, the last stage in finishing a film. But we've had to pause our efforts due to the current health crisis.
The fine cut of the film has been praised by people we've shared it with.
"Truly inspiring and informative, with a powerful message... an essential film that everyone who cares about justice and peace will want to see.”
- David Cortright, Director of Peace Accords Matrix, University of Notre Dame
We look forward to sharing it with you later this year.
