We made the film that stunned the world
Reprieve came to us to raise awareness around force-feeding at Guantanamo Bay, and do this in a way that would demand the world’s attention.
Where was the uproar over force-feeding? The cruel practices carried out at Guantanamo Bay were flying well under the public radar and we had to bring them to light.
A social issue can become relevant overnight, if the story is told by someone who is popular and globally recognised.
We force-fed the hugely successful hip-hop artist Mos Def, bringing the atrocities still present in Guantanamo Bay home to millions with a global influencer as the face of the campaign.
