Winner of a Golden Globe and nominated for 5 BAFTAs, The Mauritanian is now available on VOD/Streaming! (see website for where you can watch)
Social Construct’s joint venture Convergent Media is executive produced The Mauritanian (formerly Prisoner 760), the feature film version of the NYT Best Seller, Guantánamo Diary, by former Guantánamo prisoner Mohamedou Ould Slahi.
This is inspiring the true story of Slahi’s fight for freedom after being detained and imprisoned without charge by the U.S. Government for years. Alone and afraid, Slahi (Tahar Rahim) finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley) who battle the U.S. government in a fight for justice that tests their commitment to the law and their client at every turn. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by a formidable military prosecutor, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch (Benedict Cumberbatch), uncovers shocking truths and ultimately proves that the human spirit cannot be locked up.
