Beneath the Blindfold interweaves the personal stories of four torture survivors who now reside in the U.S., but originally hail from different parts of the globe: South and Central America, Africa, and the U.S. Filmmakers Ines Sommer and Kathy Berger set out to counter the ‘blind spot’ in our national conversation about torture by focusing on survivors’ personal stories, insights and struggles.


Panel Discussion will follow the film and feature:


Juan Mendez, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture


Dr. Lin Piwowarczyk, National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs


Dr. Mary Fabri, Heartland Alliance Marjorie Kovler Center


Kathy Berger and Ines Sommer, filmmakers of “Beneath the Blindfold”


 


All proceeds benefit the host, Torture Abolition and Survivor Support Coalition International
