Congratulations to Alex Gibney, whose “Taxi to the Dark Side” won best documentary at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

The film, recently acquired by HBO, investigates the use of torture in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay through the story of a young taxi driver who was tortured and killed in Afghanistan by U.S. interrogators in 2002.

Gibney is working as a consulting producer on an upcoming CIR documentary.
