This film is shown as part of program7.

In “white torture”, prisoners are locked in a cell in which everything is white: the walls, the floor, the ceiling, even the clothes and the food. This causes the prisoners to gradually lose their visual memory. WHITE ROOM is a half-fictional, half-documentary approach to the testimony of a former prisoner.

  • Duration: 6 Min.
