We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Christmas 1914, World War I rages across Europe. Soldiers on the front lines face unthinkable carnage. This Oscar-nominated "Best Foreign Language Film" is based on the true story of the unauthorized truce that inspired the song of "Christmas In The Trenches."
Winter winds blow across the no-mans-land as British and French troops hunker down in their trenches on one side of the divide, German troops in their trenches on the other.
The fates of a French lieutenant, a Scottish priest, a German tenor, and a Danish soprano will change forever, along with all the beleaguered souls who step out of their trenches this Christmas without guns. They greet their battlefield enemies with chocolate, a sip of wine, and a "Merry Christmas" — a sharing not to be tolerated by their superiors.
But, on this Christmas, they sing together a carol of peace!
2005. 116 mins. PG-13. Written and directed by Christian Carion. English, French and German with English subtitles.
