"Best 2012 Political Documentary" – Chicago Reader
With a gentle yet insistent voice, "Beneath the Blindfold" tells the stories of four torture survivors who are among the more than 500,000 survivors who live in the United States. Directed by Chicago filmmakers 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. We follow them through the daunting steps of building new lives, careers, and relationships. And despite the continued fallout from their experience, they feel empowered to speak out and become public advocates for an end to torture.
