Standard Operating Procedure

In 2004, images of abuse and torture in Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison exploded into the news media, and shocked the world. The mistreatment took place under the watch, and in some cases, command, of the 372nd U-S military police company. Several members of the company photographed the abuse. Those photographs now propel the political message of a new work by award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris, called Standard Operating Procedure. Morris recently told Eight Forty-Eight's Jonathan Miller that the photographs revealed much more than met the eye. 

Standard Operating Procedure is out now in theaters.

Listen to an extended interview with Errol Morris.
