Monterey Peace and Justice Center, the Peace Coalition of Monterey County and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom Monterey County Branch present a free virtual film screening event:

Thursday, December 17, 2020, 6 pm – 8 pm PST

Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) is a 2006 Academy-award winning film
based on the Christmas Truce of December 1914. French, Scottish, and
German soldiers broke military law and emerged from their trenches for
a brief interlude of peaceful pastime with their enemy combatants.  It’s a war film
that humanizes the soldiers, acknowledges their connectedness, and
reminds us of the carnage, absurdity, and hypocrisy of war. Runtime: 1h 56m.
