SIR! NO SIR!

I just saw "SIR! NO SIR!" at a pre-screening here in D.C. It opens widely on May 19th at E. Street Cinema. There's an assumption that soldiers are maliciously violent, brutish creatures - especially within the mainstream anti-war movement. This movie is effective at showing us that soldiers, and by implication - men, are made, not born. And that we may have something to learn from folks that risked so much to stand up for what they believe in. SIR! NO SIR! can be our collective response to patriarchy!
