Making Waves: 2019 Oakland International Film Festival Program

We at JPRI are pleased to present a screening and discussion of this important film, in partnership with the Oakland Film Society and Veterans for Peace.

“In 1958, four Quaker peace activists set sail for the Marshall Islands—the U.S. nuclear testing zone—to alert the world to the devastating effects of the bomb on people and the environment. When the crew was arrested and jailed in Hawaii, public outcry for their release sparked a movement that led to the signing of the Limited Test Ban Treaty in 1963. Sixty years later, Veterans for Peace has restored this historic wooden boat and embarked on a global mission to end the arms race. Shot on board the Golden Rule during a protest of the Navy’s Air and Sea show in San Diego Bay, the film features interviews of veterans whose stories illuminate the true costs of warfare.” (Making Waves film website)
