Happy Sunday MMT Fam! Can you believe it’s already the last full week of February 2021? Where does all the time go? LOL, I know I’ve spent a lot of this month fitting in screeners and here’s an opportunity for a lucky few of you to do the same!
MMT is giving away 40 passes to Wednesday’s virtual screening of THE MAURITANIAN, based upon the book “Guantanamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi and directed by Kevin Macdonald (Whitney, The Last King of Scotland), starring Jodie Foster, Tahar Rahim, Zachary Levi, and Saamer Usmani with Shailene Woodley and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Here’s the synopsis: “This is the inspiring 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.”
To get a pass, click here to get to the STX landing and select the RSVP prompt. Passes are not guaranteed and are first come, first served. Approximately one hour before the screening start time, winners will receive links to access the screening (space is limited to view and availability is also first come, first served to those that click on the link, so arrive early).
THE MAURITANIAN is in theaters now and will release on premium video on demand on March 2nd.
Good Luck! Thomasena
