In the new documentary Standard Operating Procedure, Errol Morris examines the incidents of abuse and torture on suspected terrorists at the hands of U.S. forces while stationed at the Abu Ghraib prison.

We recently caught up with Morris to talk about tackling this grueling, three-year long project. To watch our exclusive interview with the award-winning director, click on the video clip below:
