Earlier this year, Seattle filmmaker Sandy Cioffi and her crew were traveling in Nigeria in search of closing footage for Sweet Crude, her documentary about life in the dirt-poor-but-oil-rich Niger Delta. On April 12, they were apprehended by the Nigerian military and held for seven harrowing days. Tonight Cioffi joins an international panel of journalists and human-rights advocates to parse "the deeper story and larger issues" behind her detainment and the growing risks of international journalism.
