Conviction

August 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Conviction is a documentary film about three Dominican nuns who took the proliferation of nuclear arms in the country personally. These women saw it a their duty, their mission, their religious calling, to break into a missle silo in Colorado, chant, pour their own blood and get jailed for their beliefs. They were convicted and sentenced to Federal Prison for their non-violent protest at a Minuteman III missile site in Northern Colorado.

The film evokes important conversations about the role of religion in politics, the role of nuclear weapons in national defense and the role of International Law in the Federal Courts.
