LOGLINE: A true story from the front lines of the sixties peace movement as told by activist Francesco Da Vinci who risked prison as a conscientious objector and formed a peace group in militaristic San Diego that stirred the conscience of America.
A young peace activist, who gave up a life of privilege in order to work to end the Vietnam War. For refusing induction in Virginia he was threatened with a five-year prison term, and became the target of intense ostracism that spilled over to his family and fiancee.
Despite the advice of his draft attorney to keep "a low profile, he formed Nonviolent Action, a peace
group, with the support of Cesar Chavez and singer Joan Baez.
Viewers will see many amazing parallels between the polarization of the sixties and today's divided America. The doc is intended to carry on the altruistic spirit of the sixties and promote social justice and peace through nonviolence.
