A friend of mine has decided to create a website that parodies the US army recruitment site. Interesting in itself, but I thought it would be relevant here because if you click on the banner in the site, you are able to watch a documentary film called “Paralels” in it’s entirety.

I saw this film being shown at the Calgary International film festival and it is being shown at the Vancouver international film festival as well. The film deals with desertion and interviews soldiers from Vietnam and Iraq who decided to desert, showing the “parallels” in their experiences. Very cool, worth checking out, it’s an important issue and it’s better than paying the 10 bucks to see it in the theatre.

This is short and to the point, but well shot and poignant.

Well Done.
