The Mauritanian


The Northwest Film Center and the Portland Art Museum present The Mauritanian.

Streaming online Wednesday, February 24 at 7 p.m. This special sneak preview one-night screening is FREE for PAM & NWFC members only.

Directed by Kevin Macdonald and based on the New York Times best-selling memoir Guantánamo Diary by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, The Mauritanian is the inspiring, true story of Slahi’s fight for freedom after being detained and imprisoned without charge by the U.S. Government for years. Alone and afraid, Slahi (Tahar Rahim) finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley), who battle the U.S. government in a fight for justice that tests their commitment to the law and their client at every turn. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by a formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), uncovers shocking truths and ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be locked up.

Cast: Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim, Zachary Levi, Saamer Usmani with Shailene Woodley and Benedict Cumberbatch
