Adeel Ahmad, a full time acting student for TVI, is currently appearing in Voices from Guantanamo, a collection of performed poems about prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. “Voices from Guantanamo takes on an important aspect of the current political situation and presents it for the audience, hopefully opening a dialogue with and for the viewers about the realities of the world in which they live.
