3/5 Thurs 7:30 pm The premiere screening of "From Duluth to Balad" - Duluth. At the Friends Meeting House, 1802 E. 1st St. Admission is free, and the showing will be followed  by Q+A with the producer, Michael Latsch. The documentary work uses modern combat footage and archival photos to explore the political history of how Duluth's 148th Fighter Wing went from patrolling the skies of Duluth to bombing the cities of Iraq. It examines the moral costs of that transition, and asks if seeking funding for the Air Guard is an appropriate way for Duluth to develop its economy. The production is sponsored by Veterans for Peace, Chapter 80 and the Northland Anti-War Coalition.  For more information, and to see the trailer, visit  crispykale.blogspot.com.
