Amnesty International UK 'defy them' by WCRS

4.5 1 Votes

Amnesty International has launched a gritty online film to raise awareness of the reality faced by torture victims.

The 90-second film starts by showing torturers half-drowning their victim. However, it quickly u-turns as the torturers lose control of their hands as they are forced to act against their will and free their victim.

The hidden force is revealed to be a group of Amnesty International supporters. The film ends with the statement: "Torturers: defy them, join Amnesty International".
