Amnesty International’s Security with Human Rights campaign, has just released a short film called ‘Hooded’. It is a powerful reminder that torture is barbaric and never justifiable.

Just two minutes long, this film uses a unique approach by marrying abstract images with intense sound design to convey the auditory and visual experiences associated with torture. It's a disturbing but gripping film that demonstrates the shocking effects of torture techniques such as water boarding and "hooding".
