Military Myths
Directed By: Paper Tiger Television With ROOTS
USA, 2001, 28 minutes

Produced in collaboration with youth activists from ROOTS, MILITARY MYTHS offers an update to IT'S NOT JUST A JOB, a video produced in the early 1980s by Paper Tiger TV and the War Resisters League, a video intended to inspire young people to make more balanced decisions about their future. Young people today are smacked with military advertisements and recruiters coming into their schools and communities offering sign-up bonuses, money for education, and job training. MILITARY MYTHS takes a critical look at the military's promises. The producers contrast media representations of war and military life with the personal experiences of veterans who have gone to war. Interviews with activists and students are also presented along with statistics from the Veterans Administration, CCCO, SLDN, and recent Pentagon studies that lay clear the myths of military life.

About 3rd I. 3rd I New York's monthly film and music salon designed by local filmmakers and experimental DJs showcases the works of independent filmmakers of South Asian descent and local djs, musicians and electronica artists. Providing alternative forums for South Asian filmmakers who often have few venues to showcase their work not only increases their visibility, but also provides a social forum for peers and audiences to participate in an ongoing discussion.
