The Road to Guantanamo. Great docudrama by Michael Winterbottom about four British Pakistanis who went to Pakistan in 2001 as one of them was to be married there. They decide to take a short trip into Afghanistan to perhaps help people but end up stranded in a Talibani infested town. As war is declared and the bombing starts, they try to make their way back to Pakistan but end up getting arrested by US forces and eventually deported to Guantanamo Bay where they face.. well, you can guess that part. Shocking stuff, absolutely shocking - nothing I didn't know yet - but still a great re-enactment through the eyes of actual Gitmo prisoners (told by them). Go see this, seriously!
