“Unsubscribe Me” is an Amnesty International campaign against human rights abuse in the ‘war on terror’.
Instead of PGing the message to appeal to a wider audience, AI instead chose to show the real deal, and put a performance artist through the real interrogation techniques permitted by the CIA handbook.
The first of three films is called Waiting For The Guards, and involves the artist spending six hours in a “stress position”. The pain and anguish that you hear is real, and the emotion is raw.
The end result is a video that may be disturbing to some viewers; but then again, I guess that’s the point:
How much terror are we willing to use to fight the war on terror?
