First they fought in the war and then they fought to end it. Award-winning breakout theatrical hit SIR! NO! SIR! unfolds the stunning, but almost entirely forgotten, story of the military men and women who forced the U.S. government to end the Vietnam War. Contrary to the popular image of long-haired hippies spitting on returning soldiers, SIR! NO! SIR! powerfully demonstrates that GIs were the heart and soul of the anti-war movement.
Poignantly narrated by a diverse cast of war resisters, who recall the ferocious days of peace marches and stiff jail sentences, SIR! NO! SIR! pulls no punches in its raw depiction of the power of people, especially those in uniform. Trading dog tags for picket signs, Purple Hearts for peace signs, thousands of ordinary GIs in that world-changing era broke ranks to start up homemade underground papers, subversive coffee shops near military bases, and to engage in mass civil disobedience that brought the war machine to its knees. Directed by David Zeiger, SIR! NO! SIR! is “powerful stuff, offering us not only a new look at the past, but to the unavoidably relevant insights into the present” (New York Daily News).
