Taxi to the Dark Side

“We were being told to rough up Iraqis that wouldn’t cooperate. We were also told they’re nothing but dogs. Then all of the sudden, you start looking at these people as less than human and you start doing things to them that you would never dream of, and that’s where it got scary.” –Sgt. Ken Davis, 372nd MP Company at Abu Ghraib

TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE is a gripping investigation into the reckless abuse of power by the Bush Administration. A documentary murder mystery that examines the death of an Afghan taxi driver at Bagram Air Base, the film exposes a worldwide policy of detention and interrogation that condones torture and the abrogation of human rights. This disturbing and often brutal film is the most incisive examination to date of the Bush Administration’s willingness, in its prosecution of the “war on terror,” to undermine the essence of the rule of law. The film asks and answers a key question: what happens when a few men use the wartime powers of the executive to undermine the very principles on which the United States was founded? A Jigsaw Production. (Excerpt from main website)
