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.

    The zoom link isn’t working for me. I was one of the people around the nation who fasted in 2013 to get more prisoners released from Guantanamo (for 84 days in my case) so was hoping to hear and join the discussion.

    Wow! Powerful film very well done. I watched the screener you sent, but never got the Zoom link for the post-film Q&A, so I’m hoping it will be available on video for later viewing.

    Can’t afford a $20 movie this month… perhaps you guys could start a fundraiser? Joined the introduction conversation, thanks for the insight. Let me know!
