Title: Torture in the Eighties
Description: This short film was produced to coincide with the Amnesty International book ‘Torture in the Eighties’ which in turn was an element of the wider Campaign for the Abolition of Torture. Amnesty International Secretary General, Thomas Hammarberg outlines the main themes of the campaign. The film consists of a statement by the Secretary General aimed at audiences such as members of parliament and specialists in the field of human rights who are already familiar to some extent with Amnesty International’s concerns.

Please note that the video contains some disturbing material from AI’s medical and photographic files which some sectors of the general public and audiences such as schools may find too shocking.
