A. Flyer text for the November 9th program:
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, asks Americans:
"Is this something you want done in your name? Isnt it time there was the
same sense of outrage that people had about apartheid? That people should
have had about the Holocaust? What would happen if it was Americans held by
another country in these conditions?"

Should Know, by Michael Ratner, President of the Center for Constitutional
Rights, and featuring the Australian feature documentary (2004) "The

B. THE PRESIDENT VERSUS DAVID HICKS
directed by Curtis Levy (Australian, 2004, 81 MINS, Color)
Showing: Tuesday Oct.12, 2004, 6:00 PM (central time)
This is Sundance's description: The father of a young Australian who
embraced fundamentalist Muslim ideals, and came to be labeled a "unlawful
combatant" by President Bush, retraces his son's journey from Adelaide to
Guantánamo Bay in this compelling documentary by Curtis Levy. With excerpts
from letters to family and friends and interviews with a former Guantánamo
detainee and a Northern Alliance commander, this disturbing and
thought-provoking film contemplates the transformation of a naïve horse
trainer and rodeo rider into an anti-Semitic acolyte.
