Die Vereinigten Staaten Anfang der 70er Jahre: Die Zeit des Vietnamkonfliktes, der Hippies und studentischer Unruhen. Der US-Präsident verhängt den Ausnahmezustand und erlaubt über ein Notstandgesetz, Kriegsgegner und Regimekritiker festzunehmen. In einer Wüstenzone südlich von Kalifornien begleitet eine britische Filmcrew die verurteilten Dissidenten der Strafgruppe 637, die sich statt einer mehrjährigen Haftstrafe für einen 3-tägigen Aufenthalt im Bear Mountain Strafpark entschieden haben, wo sie nun in einem tödlichen Katz-und-Maus-Spiel um ihre Freiheit kämpfen. In der sengenden Wüstenhitze müssen sie zu Fuß und ohne Verpflegung knapp 100km unwegsames Gelände hinter sich bringen, um die am Ziel aufgestellte amerikanische Flagge zu erreichen. Dabei werden die verzweifelten Widerständler von schwer bewaffneten Einsatzkräften gejagt - eine Tour durch die Hölle. Am Rande des Strafparks steht ein großes Militärzelt, in dem parallel dazu bereits die Angeklagten der nachfolgenden Strafgruppe 638 von einem Sondergericht verurteilt werden ..."Strafpark" ist radikales Polit-Kino und als verstörende Parabel auf staatliche Repression in Zeiten politischer Unruhe heute aktueller denn je.Darsteller:Carmen Argenziano, Kent Foreman, Patrick Boland, Katherine Quittner, Luke Johnson, Mark Keats, Mary Ellen Kleinhall, Scott Turner, Stan Armsted

Fort Benning Blues

If you've never even been to Southeast Asia, can you be a Vietnam veteran? In a novel that captures the life and times of a generation, Mark Busby takes us on a journey through an era of hippies, the shootings at Kent State University, integration, and Woodstock. 'Fort ''Benning'' Blues' tells the story of Vietnam from this side of the ocean. Drafted in 1969, Jeff Adams faces a war he doesn't understand. While trying to delay the inevitable tour of duty in Vietnam, Adams attends Officer Candidate School in Fort Benning, Georgia, desperately hoping Nixon will achieve 'peace with honor' before he graduates. The Army's job is to weed out the 'duds,' 'turkeys,' and 'dummies' in an effort to keep not only the officers but also the men under their command alive in the rice paddies of Vietnam. It doesn't take long for the stress to create casualties. Lieutenant Rancek, Adams' training officer at OCS, is ready to cut candidates from the program for any perceived weakness. He does this, not for the Army, but because he wants only the best .' . . leading the platoon on my right' when he goes to Vietnam. Hugh Budwell, one of Adams' roommates, brings the laid-back spirit of California with him to Fort Benning. Tired of practicing estate law, he joins the Army to relieve the boredom he feels pervades his life. About Officer Candidate School, Budwell states, 'If I wanted to go through it without any trouble, I'd be wondering about myself.' Candidate Patrick 'Sheriff' Garrett, a black southerner, spends a night with Adams in the low-crawl pit after they both raise Rancek's ire. Expecting racism when he joined the Army, Garrett copes better than most with the rigors of Officer Candidate School. Busby uses song lyrics, newspaper headlines, and the jargon of the era to bring the sixties and seventies alive again. Henry Kissinger is described as 'Peter Sellers as Dr. Strangelove' and Lieutenant William 'Rusty' Calley as 'Howdy Doody in uniform.' Of My Lai, Busby says, 'At Fort Benning everybody took those actions as a matter of course.' As America continues to try to comprehend the effects of one of the most transforming eras in our history, 'Fort ''Benning'' Blues' adds another perspective to the meaning of being a Vietnam veteran.

Even life in the greatest city in the world can sometimes feel like a little too much. For this New Yorker, running away to the Heartland may be just the antidote. When New York City native Desirée Christian-Cohen flees her sometime-boyfriend, unhappy mother, Nina (who’s recently learned her soon-to-be ex-husband Patrick is gay), and failing grandfather, she picks the flight plan by randomly dropping her finger on a map and hitting: Honey Creek, Kansas, population 1,623. And if being a “tourist” in Honey Creek weren’t noticeable enough, try hanging out in the Sweet Tooth luncheonette, where you’re referred to as “half a Jew.” Wary of , but wanting to, fit in with the local populace, Desirée is forced to defend herself and define herself in a world that feels vastly different from her own. Her Yale boyfriends were never like Bobby McVicar, the son of two ageing hippies, who finds all he needs in his pinprick of a hometown. And never—even as an only child of typically doting Manhattan parents—has anyone paid so much attention to Desirée. Over one surprising, transformative and sometimes very funny summer, Desirée Christian-Cohen, member-in-good-standing of the Self Esteem Generation, discovers how an impulsive escape from home and family turns out to be much more than that.
