Starring Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim, Shailene Woodley and Benedict Cumberbatch, the legal epic is opening in time for awards consideration.

A Great Point-managed EIS company funded development of the film.


Based on the New York Times bestseller ‘Guantanamo Diary’ the film tells the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, who is arrested in his native Mauritania in the aftermath of 9/11 and held at Guantanamo Bay without charge for well over a decade.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (Last King of Scotland, Touching The Void) and with a multi-award winning cast, click here to see the trailer:
