Tortured Law Film Making Waves

With over 70 screenings planned across the country, our new film Tortured Law is having an impact nationwide. Nearly 5,000 people have watched the film on YouTube, and its viral presence continues to grow. We’ve recruited thousands of people to join the campaign urging Attorney General Eric Holder to release the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility report and authorize a full investigation of those who ordered, designed, and justified torture.

We have had great events such as one last week at UC Berkeley School of Law, where one of the authors of the torture memos, John Yoo, is currently on faculty. The students there used our film as part of an event to launch their Torture Accountability Initiative.

Coming up, we have an exciting event at American University’s Washington College of Law on November 3rd, featuring Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Stephen Vladek, Nan Aron, David Luban, Stuart Taylor, and Daniel Levin. You can email films@afj.org to find out more or RSVP for this event. You can also find out more on our web page, www.afj.org/torture.

Help us continue the great momentum around the film by watching Tortured Law and sharing it with your friends today!
