We spent a lot of time, the cinematographer, the designer and I, talking about how we would do, and the writers, how we would do these sequences because, obviously, it is the center of this story in a way is that the character is, it is not surprising , is severely tortured and abused. And you don’t want to do that in a way that makes the entire audience get up and leave their seats or turn off if you’re watching at home, as can be.

But at the same time I wanted to make this a really powerful emotional experience that would explain everything we’ve seen up to that point, and also see it, this is crucial, look at it from Mohamedou’s point of view. This is a movie unlike any other that I think has been made in which you are forced to empathize with a Muslim accused of terror and see what happens.
