Standard Operating Procedure

Errol Morris' latest film explores the events surrounding the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse.

A guest writer for the Design Observer wrote a nice bit on the screening with Q&A wtih Morris.
"Morris's motives differ in each case, to be sure, but he is nonetheless determined to have us empathize with people who disgust us. He doesn't attempt to extract apologies from them, per se. But at least one of his goals in these movies is to give these villains, whom we have branded and brushed under the rug, a chance to explain"
