Sir No Sir

If I had seen this film while I was in Iraq , things would have been much different. -Garett Reppenhagen, Army Sniper and OIF Veteran. Co-Founder of Iraq Veterans Against the War

This is powerful stuff, offering us not only a new look at the past, but unavoidably relevant insights into the present. –Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

A film that threatens the war movement with every showing, the Bush administration should outlaw it from all theatres within fifty miles of an armed forces recruiting station.— Ron Wilkinson , Monsters and Critics

On July 15, Sir! No Sir! will be available on DVD**

Over the last three months, Sir! No Sir! has played in theaters in more than 50 cities, generating excitement, controversy, and rave reviews. All reviews are posted at

Thousands have seen it, but millions need to.

Now, in response your calls to get this film out everywhere, a limited edition DVD of Sir! No Sir!, along with the powerful flash animation by Not Your Soldier and Ruckus Productions, Punk Ass Crusade, will be available starting July 15 for $19.95 plus shipping and handling.


From the beginning, word-of-mouth and the internet have been the main way news of this film has spread. Over the holiday weekend, please help spread it even farther. Please send this email out to your own lists, and download the flyer available at:

to hand out at your events this weekend and beyond!

And starting July 15 you can…

***Buy the DVD
***Host house parties to show and spread it further

***Register online to set up activist screenings

***Use the film to support the growing number of soldiers who are resisting the Iraq war, and

***Turn this summer into The Summer of Sir! No Sir!

And that’s only the beginning. Also for sale will be a CD Soundtrack of the film with the stirring and innovative score written by Buddy Judge, and all of the songs in the film including Soldier We Love You by Rita Martinson. This is the only CD available with Rita Martinson’s incredible tribute to GI resisters that stirs audiences at every screening of the film. The unstoppable pirate DJ Dave Rabbit of “Radio First Termer” fame also makes several appearances.

As a special bonus, my film, A Night of Ferocious Joy, will also be available–a film that chronicles an audacious, in-your-face concert held on Mother’s Day, 2002, to confront the “war on terror” that brought together Ozomatli, The Coup, Blackalicioius, Dilated Peoples, Saul Williams, Mystic and many others. A film for everyone looking for inspiration and hope in a dark world.

In coming months, additional great films, music and books relevant to GI resistance then and now will be added to the list of products available at the site. And while you’re there, take some time to roam through the newly completed, stunning archives featuring thousands of underground papers, cartoons, audio recordings and photographs illustrating the depth and breadth of the GI Movement.

And in the fall, an expanded DVD of Sir! No Sir!, with a wealth of additional material included, will be available at stores and on web sites everywhere. Included will be several additional stories from that GI Movement, an exclusive interview with pirate radio DJ Dave Rabbit, the court-martial of Iraq war resister Camilo Mejia, and presentations by Jane Fonda, Cindy Sheehan, and many more.

Finally, I want to thank all of you once again for the support you have given to Sir! No Sir! and hope you will continue to spread the film far and wide.

David Zeiger’s superb documentary about the Vietnam War era’s GI protest movement is jammed with incident and anecdote and moves with nearly as much breathless momentum as the movement itself. ~ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly

“Sir! No Sir!” combines exceptional artistry and insightful analysis with great story telling. This is no facile agitprop piece, but a careful dissection of a growing military rebellion that permanently altered American society, but has largely been forgotten. ~ International Documentary Magazine
