Debi Cornwall, Beyond Gitmo
Beyond Gitmo is an unprecedented, photographic global view of once-alleged terrorists held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba (“Gitmo”) after they have been cleared and freed. The project challenges viewers to question policies that deny personhood to innocent Muslims and discard our most cherished principles in the name of our safety. Beyond Gitmo hopes to educate American and Western viewers about the struggle of those attempting to rebuild their lives in a post-9/11 system.
