The Mauritanian is an adaptation of Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s memoir Guantanamo Diary, and chronicles his experience being taken from his home in Mauritania shortly after September 11, 2001 and being detained without any charge for nearly a decade-and-a-half. The United States government falsely believed that he was involved in the orchestration of the Al Qaeda-organized terrorist attacks, and kept him locked up for years without representation. Despite public outcry against Ould Slahi, Nancy Hollander agreed to be his defense attorney, and while working on his case unearthed some terrible truths about his treatment.
