Tomorrow, at 7pm, Why We Fight will be shown at U Pitt-Titusville's Haskell Library Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
Named after the series of short films by legendary director Frank Capra that explored America’s reasons for entering World War II, Why We Fight (winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival) surveys a half-century of military conflicts, asking how – and answering why – a nation of, by and for the people has become the savings-and-loan of a government system whose survival depends on an Orwellian state of constant war.Beginning with President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s prescient 1961 speech warning of the rise of the "military industrial complex," Why We Fight moves far beyond the headlines of various American military operations to the deeper questions of why America seemingly is always at war. What are the forces – political, economic, and ideological – that drive us to clash against an ever-changing enemy? Just why does America fight?

Anyone interested feel free to send a head shot and resume. If you don't have one yet that is fine we need a lot of zombie extras. Please serious inquiries only.
