The Center for Constitutional Rights is excited to partner with Amnesty International on a pre-release screening of The Report, a feature film that brings to life the story behind the Senate investigation into the CIA torture program.
There will be a reception at 6:30 PM hosted by Amazon Studios. The screening will begin at 7:30 PM, and will be followed by a discussion with producer, writer, director Scott Z. Burns and chief investigator Daniel J. Jones.
The event is free, but you must RSVP to TheReport57West@gmail.com
The Report is a riveting thriller based on actual events. Idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by his boss, Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening), to lead an investigation of the CIA’s detention and interrogation program, which was created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones’s relentless pursuit of the truth leads to explosive findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a brutal secret from the American public.
