"Reckoning with Torture" at Sundance Film Festival

What's at stake when a government condones torture?

The ACLU and PEN American Center present a one-of-a-kind performance/installation event from the frontline of the war on terror; directed for the stage and a future documentary by Doug Liman, with original artwork by Jenny Holzer.
