In Search of Monsters

For many years, Mohamedou Slahi was considered one of the most dangerous terrorists in the world. For 14 years, he was incarcerated in Guantánamo Bay and was tortured under the brutal “special interrogation” procedure. After two years of intensive research, filmmakers John Goetz and Ben Hopkins have been able to identify his tormentors. Some members of the torture team still believe he is guilty. Others see their former victim in a different way. This investigative documentary accompanies perpetrator and victim on their quest for forgiveness.

In cooperation with Human Rights Film Festival Berlin. This event is part of the event series "Rupture and reckoning: 20 years of Guantánamo".
