  • "Crossing the Line" shows Martin Sheen leading 2,319 people in the largest act of civil disobedience in the U.S. since the Vietnam war. Risking arrest, they all crossed the line onto the grounds of Ft. Benning, which houses the U.S. Army School of the Americas (now called Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation). It took place on November 22, 1998, with over 7,000 people from all over the U.S. and other nations--some trained Ft. Benning--met just outside the gates of the army base.Carrying symbolic coffins and crosses bearing the names of thousands of men, women and children assassinated by SOA graduates in Latin America, they demanded that the U.S. government stop training foreign soldiers and close SOA's doors forever. "Crossing the Line" documents this inspiring and dramatic non-violent protest.
