(WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/28/08) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is urging American Muslims and other people of conscience to attend the world premiere of the film “Bunker Hill” at the UDC Auditorium in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, June 12. The free screening is sponsored by the ACLU of the National Capital Area (ACLU-NCA), and will be followed by a panel discussion.
The film tells the story of a fictional “next” massive terrorist attack on the United States and its aftermath in a small Kansas town. Fear in the town leads to the creation of a posse of gunmen, resulting in torture, illegal searches and, eventually, murder.
