Join us for a screening of the eye-opening film 'Beneath the Blindfold,' which takes a look at the lifelong consequences of torture.

The first documentary to center on the lifelong consequences of torture, Beneath the Blindfold explores the experiences of four survivors of political torture as they adjust to normal life.

With a focus on survivors' personal stories and struggles, audiences can witness the destructive physical and psychological impacts of abuse and imprisonment. Despite frightening flashbacks, and ongoing medical problems, these survivors feel empowered to become public advocates for an end to torture, helping to counter much of the misinformation about torture's effectiveness while deepening our understanding about the political and historical dimensions of abuse.
