Howard Zinn: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train

Montana Premiere

Howard Zinn: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train documents the life and times of historian and activist Howard Zinn and his involvement in the most important social movements of the past sixty years. Zinn believes that historians cannot simply chronicle the past, but must actively participate in the present, a commitment to activism grounded in his conviction that passivity sanctions injustice. Zinn’s life is a testament to the spirit of resistance in an age where popular culture often seems to celebrate cynicism. This documentary is about the power of optimism and action, even in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
