Australian New York based documentary producer Eva Orner, discussing her recently Oscar-nominated film Taxi to the Dark Side about the “war on terror” and torture:
It’s really important that we’ve made a film basically suggesting that [the Administration] are a bunch of war criminals and that they should be accountable. What they’ve done is outrageous. They’re messing with the rule of law. They’re messing with habeas corpus. They’re messing with the Geneva Convention.
The film has caused controversy around the world, and rightly so. The Discovery Channel has even decided not to screen the documentary because it’s apparently afraid of the subject matter.
Orner is also a friend. Her film deserves to win.
