Public Service Announcement for the
International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims
One of only three award-winning entries
selected by the IRCT for showing in 2009
INTERNATIONAL REHABILITATION COUNCIL FOR TORTURE VICTIMS
The IRCT promotes and supports the rehabilitation of torture victims, and works for the prevention of torture. Its 142 members include rehabilitation centers and programs worldwide. This PSA is the Refuge Media Project’s award-winning entry in the IRCT's competition for spots to be shown on and around June 26th, the United Nations’ International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. The images were filmed during the annual ceremony and tree-planting sponsored by the Center for Victims of Torture in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota; the 24-hour vigil and day of solidarity held each year by TASSC, the Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition in Washington, DC; and “New Bostonians” day in Boston, Massachusetts.
