Summary Three films look at cases where fundamental rights and freedoms have been threatened in post-9/11 America. Strange culture is a docudrama that tells the story of Professor Steve Kurtz, a bio-artist wrongly accused of bio-terrorism, and his fight to clear his name. Voices of dissent explores the creative ways in which American activists have expressed political dissent and exercised their First Amendment rights. Outlawed gives voice to two personal stories of extraordinary rendition--the illegal practice of foreign transport, secret detention, and torture of prisoners--by the U.S. government and its allies in the "War on Terror."
