“Beyond Babylon,” was inspired by neighborhood anti-Iraq war protests in Hollywood, CA on the same spot where D.W. Griffith filmed the destruction of Babylon for his silent epic “Intolerance.” The documentary short weaves past and present to examine the true cost of war, from 536 B.C to World War One to the beach memorials of Arlington West where a father mourns the deaths of soldiers in Iraq. It includes impassioned interviews with Fernando Suarez del Solar (Gold Star Families for Peace/Projecto Guerrero Azteca), Stephen Sherrill (founder Arlington West) and Jackie Goldberg (peace activist, California Assembly member).
