In Standard Operating Procedure, filmmaker Errol Morris examines the context of the notorious Abu Ghraib photographs—how these photos exposed alleged U.S. violations of the Geneva Convention in the interrogation of prisoners in Iraq. They also served to scapegoat “a few bad apples” and cover up a broader shift in government policies after 9/11. Four years later, the story of Abu Ghraib is still shrouded in shame and moral ambiguity. Our campaign is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the Abu Ghraib photographs and the use of this medium as a tool to document human rights violations and instigate a national dialogue on a range of post 9/11 related topics. Other initiatives will shed light on the effects of Abu Ghraib on US domestic policies and international relations.
