Screening and Discussion: "Sir! No Sir!"

November 21, 2021, 2 p.m. PST
Wende Museum

Join the Wende Museum and USC Annenberg School of Journalism for a screening of the documentary film on GI resistance to the Vietnam War SirNo Sir! The program will include a discussion and Q&A with David Zeiger, the film’s director; William Short, U.S. Army combat veteran, photographer, and author of A Matter of Conscience; and John Kent, graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis and Vietnam combat veteran. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Kelly Kent, a two-term elected school board member in Culver City and faculty member in the clinical psychology graduate school at Antioch University Los Angeles.

When SirNo Sir! was first released in 2006, during the height of the Iraq War, it caused a sensation. Broadcast on over thirty networks internationally and featured in dozens of film festivals (where it won Best Film on War and Peace at the Full Frame Documentary Festival, and the Audience Award at the Los Angeles Film Festival), its 65-city theatrical release garnered it award nominations from Film Independent, Gotham, and the IDA. Since then it has continued to have a presence on college campuses nationwide and was recently released on Netflix.

This screening is presented as part of Waging Peace in Vietnam: U.S. Soldiers and Veterans Who Opposed the War, an exhibit at the Wallis Annenberg Hall in the Annenberg School of Journalism, on view November 11–December 3, 2021.
