Project in Progress: Don't Ask Don't Tell from Dream Outloud Films
Dream Outloud films, a non-profit indie TV and film company in LA that specializes in true stories, is working on a documentary about the military's "don't ask don't tell" policy with respect to gays in the military. There is a detailed description and fundraising letter at this link.
There have been a number of films over the years that have dealt in some way with the topic of gays in the military. One of the best known is the television film "Serving in Silence" about Greta Cammmermeyer. There is a spoof film "Don't Ask Don't Tell: Killers from Space" that overlays a campy military thriller with Peter Graves. A list of such films is at this link.
