In “Road to Guantanamo”, director Michael Winterbottom presents the true story of three British Muslim men, known as "the Tipton Three," who were unjustly arrested and held for more than two years in Guantanamo. By blending dramatic re-enactments, interviews with the surviving men and archival news footage, Winterbottom's docudrama delivers a chilling and shocking exposé of the human rights abuses inherent in Bush’s War on Terror. “Torturing Democracy” is a very concise depiction of the crimes perpetrated by George Bush and Dick Cheney against the laws of the Geneva Convention, decency, and the Constitution. With a new administration, there must be accountability for the illegal actions of the past years.
