Guantánamo Bay Torture edit

Rough cut with BITC. Interviews taken during 2007 and 2008.


This short film is an excerpt from the forthcoming Spectacle production 'Outside The Law: Stories From Guantánamo'. This edit focuses on the experiences of torture of prisoners held captive at Guantánamo Bay; also looking at the alleged presence of MI5 and MI6 British agents at their illegal interrogations. The accounts from Lawyers, campaigners and ex-prisoners at the camp challenge the legitimacy and morality of the methods employed.

Interviewees include:

Moazzam Begg, spokesperson for Cage Prisoners and former Guantánamo Bay Detanee

Shakeel Begg, Imam, Lewisham Mosque

Gareth Pierce, Birnberg Pierce and Partners

James Yee, Former U.S. Military Chaplain at Guantanamo Bay

Tom Wilner, Stearman and Sterling LLP

Zachary Katznelson and Clive Stafford Smith from Reprieve
