The Brigham Young University Department of Theatre and Media Arts presents a screening of "Persons of Interest" Monday, April 12, at 11 a.m. in 3389 Wilkinson Student Center.

The screening is free and the public is welcome to attend.

The film, featured at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, is a documentary depicting the human cost of the U.S. Justice Department's campaign against Arab or Muslim immigrants during the post-9/11 frenzy to combat terrorism.

A question-and-answer session with "Persons of Interest" director Tobias Perse will follow the screening.
