Military Option

Military Option
Film Location: 
New York, NY

Money, travel, and women. Two young men of color discover, at a Queens recruitment office in New York, that those three selling points are still the hook that military recruiters use to lure young men to enlist. Through a combination of reenactments and the real-life experiences of these two young men, Military Option looks at the military recruitment process as it mobilizes fantasies. The video was part of a 2005 fourteen- piece touring series entitled Call for Change, produced by JT Takagi for Third World Newsreel.
