    I am very excited about seeing this film.
    I am a fan of “End of the Spear,” so my expectations are great.

    I teach a class about nonviolent movements at Franklin College.

    Thanks for the note Diana. The September launch tour is really taking shape and I will be with the protagonist of the film doing panel discussions with the screenings. I hope your non-violence class can see the film at Franklin.

    I saw a screening of this at UNC Greensboro on September 23rd. I thought it was an amazing depiction of what is a heart-wrenching situation. I have been following this conflict for the last several years and I am glad to see the focus turn toward nonviolent activists. Thanks so much for this film.
