The Mauritanian - Film Screening with Q&A

Join the movement to #CloseGITMO and be a part of a conversation about The Mauritanian, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Shailene Woodley, Tahar Rahim, and Jodie Foster.

Based on a true story, The Mauritanian follows attorney Nancy Hollander, her associate and a military prosecutor who uncover a far-reaching conspiracy while investigating the case of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, tortured over 3 years during the Bush administration, and unjustly imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for fourteen years. Watch the trailer here and sign our letter to Biden asking him to close Guantánamo!

CIA torture whistleblower, John Kiriakou will introduce the film at 3pm EST. Following the screening we will have a live Q & A with Mohamedou Ould Slahi and Nancy Hollander - the real people played by Tahar Rahim and Jodie Foster. 

RSVP below to receive your link to the community Zoom gathering and Q & A session.
