Doctors of the Dark Side exposes the scandal behind the torture scandal - how psychologists and physicians implemented and covered up the torture of detainees in US controlled military prisons. The stories of four detainees and the doctors involved in their abuse show how essential doctors have been to the torture program. Director Martha Davis (Interrogation Psychologists) spent four years investigating the controversy and produced the documentary with an award-winning team that includes Oscar-winners Mark Jonathan Harris (Writer) and Mercedes Ruehl (Narrator), and Emmy-winner Lisa Rinzler (Director of Photography). Editor M. Trevino (Hidden Battles) led the post-production team of the feature length documentary. The Executive Producers are Thea Kerman and Sergio Rothstein. Hermine Muskat (Waiting for Armageddon) is Co-Producer.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion in UCL Archaeology G6 lecture theatre. Please book separately for the discussion/reception.
