What are the legal, ethical and public safety ramifications of military detention?

Sig Libowitz, an actor and film executive studying law at the University of Maryland, brought his varied careers together in The Response, a 30-minute dramatization of Guantanamo military detention hearing transcripts, screening twice today in the Loop.

Libowitz wrote and produced the film. He stars with Peter Riegert (The Sopranos), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), and Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show). Adam Rodgers directed.

The Response screens for the American Bar Association‘s national convention, today at 3 PM at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St. Then tonight at 6:30 PM, Amnesty International hosts a screening at University Center, 525 S. State. Libowitz and Mulgrew will attend both screenings.
