The Story: The Last Objectors is a 45-minute documentary movie about Canada’s Conscientious Objectors who would rather carry out alternative services than go to war. They would work in asylums, forestry camps, hospitals, and other places in the country, for years for minimum pay and zero benefits.
Over 11,000 persons (Hutterites, Quakers, Mennonites, etc.) declined to take on arms and weapons during World War II because of their faith. The Last Objectors narrates their story with intimate interviews, pictures, and pre-recorded footage.
What you’ll see: Dialogue and discussions with some still-living World War II Conscientious Objectors describing the faith that inspired them to reject arms, as well as the backlash they received from the society as a result of their choice.
