"The Oath," by Laura Poitras

Stephanie and I were at Coolidge Corner this Saturday to see this documentary which was intended to be a study of Salim Hamdan - a Yemeni who was the former driver to Osama bin Laden held at Guantanamo Bay. Instead, the story revolved around his brother-in-law, Abu Jandal, a former al-Qaeda member and jihadist who was 'reformed' after incarceration in a Yemeni prison from 2000-2002. This documentary is a "must-see." Unfortunately, it only runs at the Coolidge through tomorrow. The show times are here: see it if you can!
