Curious About Quakers and the Quaker Experience?

June 27th Film & Potluck - Witness to War with Dr. Charlie Clements

Charlie Clements Then and Now


The 1986 Academy Award winner for Documentary Short Subject Witness to War is a 29 minute film that tells the story of Dr. Charlie Clements, who went from air force pilot to dedicated pacifist. Join Dr. Charlie Clements and Durango Friends at the Durango Friends Meetinghouse on June 27th for a potluck and screening of the film.

New Day Films description of  Witness to War:

"One man's journey of conscience from Vietnam to El Salvador, Witness to War is the Academy Award winning story of Dr. Charlie Clements who was a pilot in Vietnam until he refused further combat missions. Stripped of his military identity, Charlie Clements dedicated his life to non-violence and healing, ultimately tending to the wounded behind rebel lines in El Salvador. A personal testament to the enduring tragedy of war as relevant in our times as it was then."

Potluck at 6:00 pm

Video at 7:00 pm
