Under the Hood, a Voyage into the World of Torture

Haut de la page

September 11, 2001 saw the birth of a new world order. The war against terror now allows institutionalized violence to be exercised with full impunity. The documentary Under the Hood, a Voyage into the World of Torture retraces the stories of several people who were illegally tortured by democratic countries convinced of their absolute right to do so. It tells the unknown stories of the victims of a new barbarity and gives a human face to the suffering. Patricio Henríquez looks back at the history of torture, which was systematized by the Catholic Inquisition in the Middle Ages, as well as at the shameful history of American complicity with torturers, and calls for vigilance. Unless we believe in our collective values, we may be pushed to self-destruction by a new totalitarianism.
