[T]error Film Screening & Panel

  • 225 19TH AVENUE S (map)

Join us Friday February 1st for the screening of the award winning feature film (t)error. We will host a panel of experts and family members of political prisoners from the ‘war on terror’. At a time where police entrapment runs rampant and individuals are persecuted for their faith, it is more important now than ever to firmly understand the police state, surveillance, and how fear & manipulation have trumped our civil liberties and privacy. There will also be space for community members to share their thoughts and feelings on the surveillance of our community.

Film Synopsis: “Saeed "Shariff" Torres, a counterterrorism informant for more than two decades, takes on what he swears is his last job for the FBI and invites filmmakers to follow his covert efforts to befriend a suspected jihadist - without informing his superiors. As surprising revelations emerge, not only about Torres’ past, but also about the increasingly murky ethical grounds of his present mission, (T)ERROR explores just how far we are going to prevent terror and exactly what liberties we are sacrificing to get there.”

This forum is brought to you by The NISA Initiative, CAIR-MN, and MSA of the University of Minnesota, MSA of Augsburg University, Minnesotans Against Islamophobia.
