Short Synopsis: Anyone can become a victim of torture. Even today and in enlightened Western cultures. Although almost 90 per cent of the world's states have ratified the UN Convention against Torture, torture is still practised in the vast majority of these countries. Governments and the economy should consider torture as a crime and act accordingly, says ACAT.
Because torture is not a fate, but a crime. On the occasion of ACAT's 40th anniversary, moving images are being used to raise awareness of this issue. Abstract landscapes and movements depict the body as a contemporary witness who remembers the scenes of torture with the help of flashbacks. Victims, some of them anonymous, make the subject of torture real.
