Join us on Fri, June 11 at 8pm for a screening of Soldiers Without Guns, an extraordinary film that tells the story of how the bloody Civil War on the island of Bougainville was halted by a contingent of the New Zealand Defense Force that landed on the island, carrying no weapons, armed only with guitars, the haka, and other instruments of peace. After the 90-minute film screening, we’ll have time for Q&A and discussion with the film director Will Watson, veteran and cultural advisor Des Ratima, and webinar participants.
