Are we prepared to abandon the principles in order to defend them? #TheForeverPrisoner, an HBO original documentary film that takes viewers, for the first time, behind the architects of America's torture program. Premieres December 6 on HBO Max.
From acclaimed director Alex Gibney (HBO’s “The Crime of the Century,” “Agents of Chaos,” “The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley”), The ForeverPrisoner is an unflinching look at how America’s torture policy began with CIA captive Abu Zubaydah - the first high-value detainee subjected to the CIA’s program of Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EITs), later identified as torture by those outside the agency. Having never been charged with a crime or allowed to challenge his detention, Zubaydah remains imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay in Kafkaesque limbo, in direct contravention of America’s own ideals of justice and due process.
