On the Line

2008 NR

A grad student joins a protest against an entrenched symbol of U.S. policy in Latin America -- the Army's School of the Americas -- and the consequences of his action raise urgent Constitutional issues. This film tells his story. The formerly apolitical Brian DeRouen serves as the focal point for an examination of the tactical and political aspects of the school's curriculum that have led to an ongoing domestic protest.
