[Page created 7 August 2014, updated 14 December 2020]. Rather than a brutal exception to current history, Turab Shah’s film’s contributors discuss Guantanamo, the so-called ‘war on terror’ including drone strikes within a history of racist domination and colonisation since 1492, using Frantz Fanon’s concept of the Zone of Non-Being.
Watch the full film below. A Q&A with the film’s producer Arzu Merali, and film participants – activist and author Amrit Wilson, and Massoud Shadjareh, IHRC Chair – with IHRC’s Abed Choudhury, follows after that. An audio of the event is available at the end of the page.
