Movie Showing "Is Anybody Listening" with Paula Caplan

05:00 pm - 10/11/2015

@ Veterans For Peace

1404 N Broadway
St. Louis MO  63102



We will be hosting a film showing of "Is Anybody Listening?" at 5:00pm on Sunday, October 11th at the national office of Veterans For Peace [located 1404 N. Broadway, St. Louis, MO 63102]. "Is Anybody Listening" is a powerful and moving film that connects the non-veteran world with the experience of veterans, giving the veteran the chance to speak openly about their experience in war.

Paula Caplan is a Harvard Psychologist and a long-time advocate for social issues. Her alarm that veterans' deeply human reactions to war and rape are diagnosed as mental illness drove her to set up free sessions nationwide for a non-veteran to listen in wholehearted, respectful silence to a veteran, reducing veterans' soul-crushing isolation and non-veterans illiteracy about war and rape. In the film, Paula takes us on her journey through interviews with veterans, archival footage, and visual art.

Less than 0.5% of the population serves in the armed forces, compared with more than 12% during WWII. With such a small percentage of the U.S population serving, many people are illiterate to war and the military lifestyle. With a mission to abolish war as an instrument of national policy, Veterans For Peace is dedicated to exposing the true costs of war, including the morale injury that veterans experience. Please join us on Sunday evening.
