Taxi to the Dark Side wins best documentary.
Last night, Taxi To The Dark Side, a documentary about an innocent Afghan taxi driver tortured to death by U.S. officials at Bagram Air Base, won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature. From director Alex Gibneyâ€™s acceptance speech:
“This is dedicated to two people who are no longer with us. Dilawar, the young Afghan taxi driver, and my father, a Navy interrogator who urged me to make this film because of his fury about what was being done to the rule of law. Letâ€™s hope we can turn this country around and move away from the dark side and back to the light.”
