Contempt of Conscience

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Director Joe Jenkins argues that military conscription is no longer physical, but financial, with each of us conscripted through our taxes. Filmed over five years, Contempt of Conscience follows UK campaign group the 'Peace Tax Seven' as they fight to redirect the proportion of their taxes destined for military spend to peaceful means. Placing conscientious objection in an historical and social context, the documentary combines striking visual archive with the engaging struggle of the group, taking us on a journey from their inception, to the arrival of the bailiffs, through the British High Court and beyond.
