A feature documentary about American war resisters and political refugees.
Between 1965-1973, over 50,000 Americans made their way to Canada, refusing to participate in the Vietnam War. Forty years later, Canada has another moral choice – whether to give refuge to U.S. veterans of the Iraq War who crossed the border instead of serving another tour. Caught between two countries, today’s war resisters have the support of the public, but are still fighting for the political will that could allow them to remain in Canada.
“Often quite personal and emotional, Peace Has No Borders reminds the viewer that conscience does matter, even when it fails to overturn the machinery of war it is opposing.”, Ron Jacobs/CounterPunch
