Amnesty International - Waiting For The Guards

I've been meaning to post this for more than two weeks but somehow I never found the time to do it. Anyway, Amnesty International recently launched a new campaign called "unsubscribe". As part of the campaign AI also commissioned 3 films to demonstrate the enhanced interrogation techniques used by the CIA in the “War on Terror”. "Waiting For The Guards" is the first of these films and it's a truly shocking, especially since they really taped a performance actor being put into a "Stress Position" for 6 hours. As AI puts it:
There is no acting on the part of the “prisoner” – his pain and anguish is for real.
Is doesn't make any sense to really describe this, the film itself is just extremely powerful:

Head over to and spread the word!
