FOUR SURVIVORS, ONE TRUTH
THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN TO ANYONE
A nursing home aide from Africa. An actor from Colombia. A U.S. Navy veteran from Chicago. A doctor from Guatemala. So different at first glance, they have a horrific experience in common: they all have been tortured. Rarely given a voice, they are among the 500,000 torture survivors who live in the U.S. As they share their powerful stories, Beneath the Blindfold (2012, 80 min.) follows them through the daunting steps of building new lives, careers, and relationships. And despite the continued psychological and physical fallout from their experience, they feel empowered to speak out and become public advocates for an end to torture.
