We Are Not Ghouls with Chris Thompson & Yvonne Bradley

US Air Force JAG Attorney Yvonne Bradley volunteered to defend a man named Binyam Mohamed who was facing a death penalty case at Guantanamo Bay in 2005. Believing the detainees at Guantanamo were ‘the worst of the worst’ in the war on terror, Yvonne’s world was turned upside down as she arrived in Cuba and began to untangle an unimaginable case. Spending the next 4 years battling to uncover the truth, Yvonne’s is a captivating story of taking responsibility in the face of corruption at the highest levels of power, and the dangers of choosing to stand up for what you believe in.  What’s the difference between a terrorist sympathizer and a hero?  Would you risk it all to do the right thing? WE ARE NOT GHOULS is a feature-length documentary which premiered at the SXSW 2022 Film Festival and won the SXSW Audience Award for the Documentary Spotlight section. 

In this episode, Dawn talks with filmmaker Chris Thompson and the subject of the film, Yvonne Bradley. They talked about Chris's personal experience with a friend from college and how that inspired him to make the film, what it was like for Yvonne to stand up for what was right while it was not in her best interest to do so, and the commitment to the bigger picture that they each made during the making of this film and to the trial. 

WE ARE NOT GHOULS was acquired for distribution by Gravitas Ventures for commercial release on February 28, 2023.
