The Zero Dark Thirty Controversy: Torture, Art, and Politics
with
Alexander Abdo, attorney, National Security Project, ACLU

Since the release of the film Zero Dark Thirty, many critics have condemned the film, claiming it contains serious historical inaccuracies and accepts some of this country's worst post 9/11 abuses. Alexander Abdo discusses the relationship and responsibility that prominent works of culture have to the historic narrative and the American public, particularly as many of the illegal practices, torture, extraordinary rendition, and now the advent of extrajudicial killings of American citizens and the "dehumanized others" along with the secrecy that shrouds these practices and lack of accountability for the policies persist.

Reckoning With Torture
Featuring
Robert Redford and Paul Auster

Reckoning With Torture, is a collaborative film project between Doug Liman, Director of the Bourne Identity, the ACLU and PEN American Center that examines the human cost of America's post 9/11 torture rogram. This excerpt features a collage of readings of testimonies by torture victims and witnesses introduced by Robert Redford plus author Paul Auster reading Manner of Death: Homicide, excerpts from autopsy reports of detainees held in U.S. custody in Iraq and Afghanistan, December 2002 to November 2004.
