The photographs from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq shocked the world. Errol Morris, one of the world's leading documentarians spent two years investigating the photographs taken at Abu Ghraib and the events depicted in them.

In this extraordinary film, Morris interviews the service personnel who took the photographs. Morris' film illuminates the powerful place photography continues to play in military operations. From a military perspective, Morris' film tells us, the crime was as much in the act of taking and being depicted in photographs as in committing acts of torture.  (2008; 116 minutes; rated MA 15+).

PLEASE NOTE: this film contains images of prisoner abuse and torture: it is not suitable for children.
