World Without Torture: A film by the IRCT

The film is also available with Arabic, French, and Spanish subtitles.

As we approach International Human Rights Day – 10th December – we are very pleased to announce the release of World Without Torture: A film by the IRCT that highlights the importance of documenting torture, as well as providing rehabilitation for torture survivors and working to ensure that torture doesn’t take place to begin with.

The film features the case of Khaled Said. His death at the hands of state police – and the attempt to cover it up through the official autopsy report – sparked massive protests in Egyptin the run-up to the  revolution that led to the toppling of Hosni Mubarak’s oppressive regime.

Documenting torture, as in the case of Said and numerous others, is among the key priorities of the IRCT.  It can have far reaching results and helps us move towards our ultimate goal: a World Without Torture.

Watch our 15 minute film to see interviews with key activists, human rights defenders, and those on the forefront of anti-torture work and rehabilitation. And celebrate Human Rights Day by sharing this video with friends and family – through e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media tools.
