HIT AND STAY is a feature-length documentary (in-production) by Joe Tropea about the antiwar movement. It takes an in-depth look at the Vietnam War era activists who challenged the Selective Service system and attempted to throw a wrench into the
war machine. HIT AND STAY may be the definitive documentary about the U.S. Catonsville Nine and the fifty or so actions that followed. Together, the participants in these events were called the Catholic Left, a group comprised largely of priests and nuns and their friends who destroyed draft records and raided the corporate offices of companies that profited from the war. This documentary tells their story in their own words with more archival footage and activists interviewed than any prior film. Interviewees include Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Bill Ayers, Amy Goodman, and over 30 activists from draft board actions. Hit and Stay seeks to explore the boundaries of nonviolent direct action and to be a conversation-starter about the antiwar movement (then and now). Donations are needed to complete the project, so email firstname.lastname@example.org. Call Joe Tropea at 443-562-1971.
