    Still from Father Roy


The Film

The Western Hemisphere Institute for Security and Cooperation (formerly the U.S. Army School of the Americas) in Fort Benning, Georgia, according to one U.S. Congressman, has “the nefarious distinction of being the place in the United States where the worst human rights abusers in the Western Hemisphere come to learn military tactics and to teach them.” Father Roy combines explosive, previously unreported information about torture training at Fort Benning with the extraordinary life and experiences of Father Roy Bourgeois, the daring activist who is leading the campaign to close down the school.
