I Refuse To Kill

I Refuse To Kill
I Refuse to Kill is the true story of how peacemakers from the ?60s to the present worked to replace methods of violence with methods of nonviolence. The film includes Occupy Wall Street, as well as a focus on the personal ?60s story of prominent peace activist Frank Capri. I Refuse to Kill has strong global relevance. It combines Capri?s personal story in the context of international peace work. Our documentary asks, Can individual activists committed to nonviolence make a difference in a violent world?
