Echoes of Bagram: Moazzam Beg returns to Afghanistan | human rights
Human rights defender Moazzam Beg returns to Afghanistan to fight demons and advocate for justice in the shadow of war.
Haunted by nightmares of torture and ill-treatment, British human rights activist Moazzam Begg decides to return to Afghanistan to confront the horrors of his past.
Muazzam was detained in the notorious Bagram and Guantanamo Bay prisons without charge or trial, before his release in 2003. Since then, Muazzam has fought for the rights of those imprisoned during the so-called US-led war on terror.
In Afghanistan, Moazzam calls for the release of Muhammad Rahim, the last Afghan detained at Guantanamo Bay.
As the nation grapples with the scars of war under the new Taliban leadership, can Moazzam make peace with his past?
“Echoes of Bagram” is a film directed by Michael McEvoy and Huriya Al Haddad.
