The Vigil (USA, 16 min)
Directed by Molly Gard
Since October 7th, 2001, the first day of the war in Afghanistan, peace activists in Corvallis, Oregon, have quietly continued the nation’s longest-running protest. These astonishingly dedicated men and women stand outside the Benton County courthouse from 5-6 pm, waving banners and flashing peace signs at passing cars, braving extreme weather, counter-protests, and threats of violence. But as the war enters its twelfth year, three vigil members are losing hope that they will live to see peace, and must decide how long this peace vigil can, and should, continue.
