Trademark Video: What is UNCAT all about?

An animated video produced by the Convention against Torture Initiative (CTI) and Nice & Serious on the benefits of ratifying and realising the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (UNCAT). UNCAT is the international human rights treaty guiding States on how to prevent and respond to torture and other ill-treatment.

CTI Short Film on recovering from torture

“Rehabilitation for victims of torture: Restoring their Humanity” is a short film, produced by the Convention against Torture Initiative and True Heroes Films, depicting the experiences of torture, trauma and recovery. Vincent Cochetel was kidnapped at gunpoint near Chechnya in 1998, while working for the United Nations. He was violently interrogated and abused by his captors, and held in near complete darkness for 317 days, before being released.

He explains – in his own words – his long yet powerful road to recovery.
