Special screening of TORTURING DEMOCRACY with Professor Susan Waltz to make remarks afterward.
TORTURING DEMOCRACY, which won the 2009 RFK Journalism Award, tells the inside story of how the U.S. government adopted torture as official policy in the aftermath of 9/11. With exclusive interviews, explosive documents and rare archival footage, the documentary has been called the definitive broadcast account of a deeply troubling chapter in recent American history. Given the recent disclosure about torture, this film should inspire dialogue about one the most pressing issues facing the U.S. Today. Tickets $9.

Presented by Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, Michigan Peaceworks, and the National Religious Campaign Against Torture as part of Torture Awareness Month.
