(T)ERROR Film Screening and Q&A with Ramzi Kassem

Thursday, February 4, 2016 -
6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Main Quad, Building 200, Room 303


A filmmaker chats with her neighbor: a pastry chef, a former Black Panther, and a Muslim. He reveals that he is also a counterterrorism FBI informant, and invites her team to film his covert efforts to befriend a suspected jihadist. What follows is a chilling, intimate insider’s look at some of the FBI’s most controversial counterterrorism practices: the use of informants. How far are we going to prevent terror, and what are we sacrificing? The screening will be followed by a conversation with Ramzi Kassem, moderated by Diala Shamas (Stanford Human Rights Clinic). Professor Kassem is the founding director of the CLEAR project at CUNY School of Law. Along with his students and colleagues, Kassem has represented hundreds of individuals who have been targeted by the surveillance practices documented in (T)ERROR
