The Guantanamo Trap

.

No one escapes Guantanamo unscathed. The film tells the story of four people whose biographies are intrinsically linked to the Guantanamo Bay internment camp on Cuba: firstly, a former prisoner from Germany. Secondly, two military lawyers active in the so-called war against terror, who themselves were instrumentalised in the system of torture and eventually plunged into a personal and moral crisis. And finally, the Spanish lawyer Gonzalo Boye, who set himself the task of bringing several representatives of the Bush administration to justice for crimes against humanity.

Press

  • Wallner tells the trio’s stories through extensive interviews, contemporary footage, and an array of archival materials, skillfully conveying the human cost of Guantanamo from a variety of perspectives. Recommended.
    Video Librarian
  • This film has the potential to inspire lively classroom debate about topics such as unlawful detention, right to due process, obedience to authority, wartime ethics, rights of enemy combatants, and culpability of leaders, to name just a few… Recommended
