DO Details

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. Directed by Ines Sommer and Kathy Berger, Beneath the Blindfold is the first documentary to fully look at the lifelong impact of torture on the physical and psychological health of survivors. We follow 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.

The event is hosted by Claire Mallinson, National Director of Amnesty International Australia. The screening will be followed by a Q & A panel including a subject expert and rights holder.

Light refreshments will be served and are included in the ticket pricing.
