Film, talk planned on attacks and aftermath, Feb. 11
Posted February 7, 2004; 03:36 p.m.
The Princeton Peace Network will present a screening of a documentary about the war in Afghanistan and a short talk by the father of a victim of the Sept. 11 attacks on Wednesday, Feb. 11.
"Civilian Casualties: Fragments From the War on Terror" will be shown at 7:30 p.m. in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall. It will be followed by remarks by Bob McIlvaine, whose son, Robert McIlvaine, a member of Princeton's class of 1997, was killed in the World Trade Center attacks.
The one-hour film, directed by Frances Anderson, tells the story of four of the founding members of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows -- Derrill Bodley, Rita Lasar, Eva Rupp and Kelly Campbell -- who traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan, in January 2002 to share their grief and offer their condolences to Afghan victims of the U.S. bombing. McIlvaine is a member of Peaceful Tomorrows, an advocacy organization working to turn grief into action for peace.
The event is cosponsored by the Coalition for Peace Action.
