Attend screening of “The Response” and discussion with its writer/director/producer Nov. 8

The campus community is invited to “Guantanamo Tribunal on Trial: A Screening and Panel Discussion of The Response” Nov. 8 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in School of Law Room 157.

The Response is an award-winning courtroom drama based on the actual transcripts of the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals, starring Kate Mulgrew from Star Trek Voyager, Peter Riegert from Law & Order: SVU and Aasif Mandvi from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The film places the audience inside the tribunal process where they, along with the military tribunal, must decide whether the evidence presented is credible and if the detainee is, indeed, an enemy combatant.

Following the screening, writer/director/producer Sig Libowitz will discuss the film and debate the Guantanamo Bay tribunal process with a panel of experts, including Dennis Terez, federal public defender, Northern District of Ohio, who has defended several of the Guantanamo Bay detainees.
