Rendition Rating: 15 14+
- 117 mins
Heavily pregnant Isabella is at home awaiting the return of her Egyptian-American husband Anwar from a business conference when she discovers Anwar has been the subject of a US government "rendition". This is the practise where terrorist suspects can be forcibly moved to other countries to be questioned without the legal restraints that apply in America. But without any further information, Isabella doesn't even know where her husband is being held - or whether there might be any truth to the government's accusations. This is powerful film-making, making an important contribution to discussions around the War on Terror and the ethics of foreign policy.
