Inspired by the work of the young American humanitarian activist Marla Ruzicka, who died in a car bombing in Baghdad in April, Peaceable Kingdom: War and the Innocent explores the misunderstood and feared populations of ‘foreign’ wars. Joseph Strick’s short film Interviews with my Lai Veterans, made in 1971 as the Vietnam War wound down, has a breathtaking, devastating resonance in the age of Abu Ghraib and Guantanomo. The event also features live readings by Tilda Swinton from the work of the late Susan Sontag. A first-hand account of the most recent debacles in winning hearts and minds is provided by the distinguished writer Jon Lee Anderson, who covered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq for the New Yorker.
