The Trial

The Trial

16' 2018
dir.: Johanna Hamilton

The biggest criminal trial in US history. 

The biggest criminal trial in US history will have little to do with the ideals and guarantees of the American Constitution, which the authorities say doesn’t extend to the base at Guantanamo. Johanna Hamilton portrays the three defenders of one of those accused of the 9/11 attacks. Although he is facing the death penalty, even the filmmakers behind Zero Dark Thirty had better access to case files than they did. The lawyers have already grown accustomed to wiretaps and have even exposed an agent on their team.
