Some Won’t Go

Fortnight 1970, Short film, 50'


Each young man who resists the draft has his own reason for not wanting to be in the army. Some Won’t Go lets each man speak for himself, in his own language, with his own gestures, from his own experience. It shows the young man in the army who has gone AWOL, the young man doing alternative service, and the young men who fled to Canada to seek refuge there, in much the same way the Black slaves of the last century took the “Underground Railroad” to freedom in the North.
