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.
