The ITVS-funded documentary by Laura Poitras is a story about family, taxis, al Qaeda, Guantanamo Bay, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Oath is the story of Abu Jandal, Osama bin Laden’s former bodyguard, and Salim Hamdan, a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay Prison and the first man to face the controversial military tribunals.
Filmed in Yemen, The Oath is the second installment in a trilogy about America post 9/11. The first film, My Country, My Country, documented the U.S. occupation of Iraq from the perspective of an Iraqi family. The third film will focus on domestic surveillance.
