With major operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, and enlistment at its lowest level for decades, the United States military is desperate for new recruits. At the same time, the military is seeing unprecedented numbers of deserters and Conscientious Objectors refusing to be re-deployed.
Tourist With A Typewriter's latest production, THE PATH OF MOST RESISTANCE, tells the story of US soldiers who - while awaiting redeployment in American’s war zones – dared to challenged the military machine by deserting or applying for Conscientious Objector status, and joined the growing movement of anti-war veterans.
We are currently filming THE PATH OF MOST RESISTANCE in the southern Germany town of Bammental, where the Military Counseling Network - an organisation dedicated to helping US soldiers get out of the army - is based. We will be back in London on November 16th for the first cut of the film, and returning to Germany in December for an additional two or three days of shooting.
Look out for daily updates of the production from director Gareth Keogh and producer Saeed Taji Farouky.
