  • Filmmakers Peter Glenn and Jason A. Schmidt explore the nonviolent movement to shut down the School of the Americas in this documentary detailing the challenges faced by protesters in the aftermath of 9/11. Also known as the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, The School of the Americas is an official Department of Defense facility that has trained over 60,000 Latin American soldiers since 1946. Critics of the institution argue that graduates of the program are some of the biggest human-rights violators in the world. But what happens when regular Americans gather peacefully to protest a program that's staunchly defended by the U.S. government? Susan Sarandon, Martin Sheen, School of Americas Watch founder F. Roy Bourgeois, CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HITMAN author John Perkins, and former U.S. Congressman Bob Barr reveal why some people are willing to face arrest and prosecution in order to challenge their government on a program that may ultimately do more harm than good.
