The Paramount Theater

The Mauritanian tells the true story of Guantanamo Bay detainee Mohamedou Ould Slahi, defense attorney Nancy Hollander, and military prosecutor Lt. Col. Stuart Couch—who happens to be our Executive Director Bill Wilder’s brother-in-law. In the events depicted in the film, Col. Couch (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) is faced with a difficult moral decision.

Join us for an advance screening of this film followed by a conversation with Col. Couch. How did his faith in Jesus Christ affect his actions and decisions in the events of this movie? Tickets are free and available on a first come, first served basis. Find more information here!
