Join with the movement to #CloseGITMO and be 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 three years during the Bush administration, and unjustly imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for fourteen years.

Special guests will introduce the film at 3:00 pm EST. Following the screening we will have a live Q & A with Mohamedou Ould Slahi, the author of Guantanamo Diary, and Nancy Hollander who represented him -- the real people played by Tahar Rahim and Jodie Foster.

RSVP to receive your link to the community Zoom gathering and Q & A session here. The first 300 people to RSVP will receive a free ticket to watch the film; you can watch the film before Saturday or between the introduction and the Q and A. Those who RSVP after the first 300 will receive a link to rent the film to watch and will also receive the link to the live intro and Q & A.
