PLATTEVILLE, Wis. - Students for Peace and Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will present documentarian Richard Rowley's film "Dirty Wars," winner of the Sundance Film Festival Award, at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, in Lundeen Lecture Hall, 103 Doudna Hall. The film is free and open to the public.

The student organization is committed to promoting understanding and awareness of local, national and global issues through exploring creative solutions. It has 33 members and is advised by Dr. David Rowley, professor of history at UW-P.

In the film, investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in United States history, exposing operations carried out by men who "do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress." The film reveals that no target is off-limits for the JSOC "kill list," even a U.S. citizen.

A discussion will follow the showing of the film.
