Storyline

Interrogate This presents a troubling and deeply human story illustrating the complexities encountered when national security, psychology, politics, ethics and morality collide. Most are unaware that mental health professionals and others have been involved in the so-called war-on-terror. These professionals have been at odds with each other and policies limiting their participation in interrogations in national security settings have evolved over the past few years. Weaving intimate interviews, archival footage, animation, innovative visuals and original music, Interrogate This presents an even-handed representation of perspectives from both sides of this thin line in the sand. Thoughtful positions from individuals close to the issues include: * Military psychologists who served at Guantanamo and elsewhere; * A career military intelligence officer; * Lawyers representing detainees and human rights organizations; * Friends and family of one particular detainee; * Psychologists/...

Trivia

The activists-psychologists AKA "Psychologists for an Ethical APA" advocated a change in policy for those psychologists acting as consultants to the interrogators at national security detention centers like GTMO. In September 2008, their efforts prevailed and the members of APA voted to prohibit any such involvement in the future. See more »
