War doc to screen Ground Zero Center

The war documentary “Scarred Lands & Wounded Lives” will be screened at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10 at the The Ground Zero Center (16159 Clear Creek Road NW, Poulsbo), via a joint venture arranged by West Sound for Social Justice, Free Range Films and The Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action.

The new documentary by filmmakers Alice and Lincoln Day examines the environmental footprint of war. From weapon production to combat, to cleanup and restoration, this film reveals how war is inextricably linked with the pollution of land, air and water, and the destruction of biodiversity and entire ecosystems.

Despite this, the filmmakers argue, war’s immense ecological ramifications are routinely underestimated, under-reported and even ignored.

“If we cannot eliminate war, we can at least require a fuller accounting of war’s costs and consequences and demand that destructive forces used in our name leave a lighter footprint on this highly vulnerable planet,” the filmmakers said in a statement. “It is to this change in values and actions that this documentary film is directed.”

The trailer can be viewed at www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkOCIx6JAd8.

As an affiliate of the International Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons, Ground Zero Center is cosponsoring the screening to celebrate ICAN’s award of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, also on Dec. 10.
