Saturday Come Slow Film




Filmed inside Cambridge University’s anechoic chamber (designed to create total silence) and featuring former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Ruhal Ahmed, this short by Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin is a reflection on Ahmed’s experiences whilst in detention (particularly how he was interrogated using high-volume music) and about the use of human sound on the body.

    The means never justifies the end. Torture does not belong in a civilised world, thus proving were have yet to attain civility.

    Es una pelicula de muy buena calidad. Dice lo suficiente . Ahora, en lo personal soy de creer que no hay peor tortura que la psicologica, porque es algo sutil , al serlo el daño entra mas profundamente ,por lo tanto,deja peores secuelas que la tortura fisica, violencia fisica. Hay gente que ha sufrido maltrato psicologico ,que prefiere haber recibido otro maltrato que el mental.

    visulaized education is very affective. Documentaries are the best options for that.
    You can say lots by this 30 or 60 minutes movie. It is not nesessary that the theme of
    the documentary is always be serious matter. But you must see that your film say somthing.
    Then it will be a original film.
