Abstract:

With a gentle yet insistent voice, Beneath the Blindfold tells the stories of four torture survivors from around the globe who are now among the more than 500,000 survivors who live in the U.S. It is the first documentary to fully look at the lifelong impact of torture on the physical and psychological health of survivors. The hardships they endured are addressed, including a U.S. soldier who received “enhanced interrogation” by his own government. But the emphasis is on the aftermath of these injustices. Beneath the Blindfold follows them through the daunting steps of building new lives, careers, and relationships. And despite the continued fallout from their experience, they feel empowered to speak out and become public advocates for an end to torture. Includes a 9-page viewers' guide to help facilitate an open discussion of an emotional and sometimes contentious topic. It also provides suggestions for continued learning and how to get involved to effect positive change.
