DC Politics on Film Festival to Screen "The Response" on May 8

Earlier this year, the University of Maryland School of Law partnered with Sig Libowitz '07, an experienced writer, actor, and film production executive, to create "The Response," a 30-minute courtroom drama that takes viewers inside the U.S. military tribunals in Guantanamo, Cuba.

"The Response" has been selected as a Spotlight Screening of the inaugural Politics on Film Festival in Washington, DC, from May 7-10. "The Response" will be shown on Friday, May 8 at the Landmark E Street Cinema, followed by a panel discussion featuring its stars Kate Mulgrew and Peter Riegert. Purchase tickets at the box office, or by clicking here.

Libowitz also will participate in an April 29 pre-kickoff panel, "What Makes a Movie Political," appearing with Dan Glickman, chair of the Motion Picture Association of America; Ann Hornaday, the chief film critic of the Washington Post; and Hillary Rosen, political reporter for CNN.

Learn more about "The Response," and read media accounts of its filming.

"The Response" and the screening and discussion are funded in part by a generous grant from the France-Merrick Foundation to the University of Maryland School of Law’s Linking Law & the Arts series.
