The Oath

Friday January 31, 8:30 pm
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Directed by Laura Poitras
2010, 90 min.

The Oath is a spectacularly gripping documentary that unspools like a great political thriller. It’s the crosscut tale of two men whose fateful meeting propelled them on divergent courses with Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, 9/11, Guantanamo Bay Prison and the U.S. Supreme Court.

This screening is part of a film series inspired by the exhibition Hito Steyerl: This is the future.
