THE ROAD TO GUANTANAMO
BRITAIN 2006
DIRECTOR: MICHAEL WINTERBOTTON, MATT WHITECROSS
Winterbottom and Whitecross recount the true story of four British Muslim men who visit Afghanistan just as war is breaking out in late 2001, and end up in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as prisoners of the U.S. government. Subjected to physical abuse and mistreatment, the men are locked in open-air cells resembling dog kennels and interrogated by CIA, FBI, and military personnel for nearly two years without charge before being released. Winners of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 2006 Berlin Film Festival, their eye-opening film skillfully blends archival footage, real-life interviews, and dramatized scenes shot on location in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran to give a visceral sense of the men's experience. (95 min)
Sponsored by the Portland Peaceful Response Coalition.


This film is not being shown in big theaters and this is an excellent chance to see it.
Ironically I read where these "actors" who made this film were stopped from boardering a plane to the US ...because of Homeland Security Concerns.
