The core of Peace Corps Film is film and video by former Peace Corps Volunteers about Peace Corps service. Examples are Jimi Sir and Once in Afghanistan.

Peace Corps Film is also film and video about the Peace Corps and by the Peace Corps. Examples are Volunteers and the Peace Corps’ recruitment ads.

It is also film and video by former Peace Corps Volunteers about topics other than Peace Corps service. An example is Taylor Hackford who produced An Officer and a Gentleman and other work.

Peace Corps Film should also be about the video on the Internet by Peace Corps Volunteers and about Peace Corps Service.

I think it will be interesting to consider what Volunteers think are the best films about the countries where they served - films set in Peace Corps countries. In my case, since I served in Uganda, the best films are Last King of Scotland, Mississippi Marsala and Idi Amin Dada.

Next time — my review of Jimi Sir.
