The Response is a courtroom drama based on the actual transcripts of the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals. In the film, three military officers must decide the fate of a suspected enemy combatant. Is he guilty of providing material support to Al Qaeda and responsible for the deaths of several American soldiers? Or is he an innocent victim of circumstances as he claims?

Please join us to learn, explore, and dialogue about the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals and the meaning of justice. The Office of Human Relations and Amnesty International USA Group 48 invite you to view The Response and engage in dialogue with Federal Public Defender, Steven Wax and adjunct professor of Lewis and Clark Law School, Travis Hall after the film. The dialogue will be led by Office of Human Relations staff and used as a space where we seek to understand, find commonalities, and share our experiences.
