Tonight: Join filmmakers Ines Sommer and Kathy Berger for 
Beneath the Blindfold

January 17, Thursday, 7 pm film showing and discussion 

 

"Where are the voices of torture survivors? As the new film Zero Dark Thirty opens in movie theaters across the country and despite the extensive media coverage of abuse at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay*, it is worth noting that the voices of torture survivors are rarely included in any of the public discussions about the use of torture. But without their stories, torture remains abstract, a practice that happens to people we neither know nor care about.  They become statistics, their human suffering easily ignored."
