Scott Rhettberg

Event Description:

WSU’s Mass Communication department will host Scott Rhettberg from the University of Bergen as part of the 7 Rivers Fulbright Chapter from 7 to 9 p.m., Monday, Sept. 18 in Somsen Auditorium.

Rettberg is a featured speaker at this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Forum at Augsburg. He will discuss his experimental film, “Hearts and Minds: The Interrogations Project.” This film is an interactive, immersive and cinematic environment that draws users into the haunting memories of ordinary American soldiers who became torturers in the course of serving their country. This project about human rights foregrounds veterans testimonies of US military enhanced interrogation practices and human rights abuses during the Iraq War, often by young and ill-trained soldiers who never entered the military to become torturers and still find themselves struggling to reconcile the activities they were asked to do.

The event is sponsored by WSU’s Travel Study Office, The University Theme, and the 7 Rivers Fulbright Chapter.
