Sous la cagoule: un voyage au bout de la torture

Under the hood: a voyage into the world of torture
by Patricio Henriquez Documentary Canada 2008 107'

In a world where the Western countries have assumed the role of guardian of democracy and hold it an exportable good, it appears striking that the U.S. government should be accused of using torture as a deterrent to maintain peace and in the war on terrorism. But this is not new: U.S. has been repeatedly embroiled in controversy about cruelty in its prisons and war zones. The film takes a long, hard look into the use of torture by dominant countries, like the U.S. and China, giving voice to those who have been stripped of their human rights.
