Two Showings, 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Wednesday April 10, 2013.

In a time when fictionalized accounts dominate the public’s understanding of torture, “Beneath the Blindfold” reveals the reality of life after torture. Four torture survivors from around the globe face the psychological and physical fallout from their experience, while going through the daunting steps of building new lives, careers, and relationships. “Beneath the Blindfold” takes an unflinching look at the consequences of torture through the eyes of survivors while celebrating their ability to regain agency and hope.
